Windows 7: ATI 3D Rage II+ driver needed (if something like that exists)

ATI 3D Rage II+ driver needed (if something like that exists)

hi everyone! first time i'm here. i've been browsing sevenforums before and i quite liked it, so i'm feeling positive about my situation
i'm trying to find a driver, or just to set up my screen refresh rate to something more than painful 60Hz. i'm using LG Flatron CRT monitor T710B and ATI 3D Rage II+ graphic card from 1998., if i'm not mistaken. OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
problem is i can't find the working driver for my graphic card and because of that i can't change the monitor refresh rate.
for now i'm tied to this hardware so it would be nice to find a solution.
i'm pretty much desperate

Origami, welcome to the Seven Forums.

You're not going to find anything for that ancient card as support for it was dropped before even XP came out. The only driver AMD has for it is the last Windows 98 driver,

Drivers for Discontinued ATI Rage

which if you were really lucky might work if you were running 32 bit Windows 7 (highly doubtful), and definitely will not work in 64 bit Windows 7.

thanks stormy13 :)
i tried like twenty different drivers with no luck. i even switched to x86 version of windows 7. i'm gonna stick with different version of windows or maybe linux until i get some other hardware, this one is just too old for any OS.
