I`ve got:

- AMD-K6 400MHz 3D processor
- 320Mb SDRAM
- Windows98 SE with Critical Update.

Currently it`s running fine with a Matrox Millenium G200 8Mb video card.

When I try to install my new AOpen GeForce2 MX200 64Mb video card my system randomly crashes (freezes). Usually not long after booting up windows and start running applications.

I`ve tried the driver from AMD - Win98/98SE AGP Miniport Driver version 4.80. Nothing I`ve tried works!

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Check your bios, It may be time for an update... I take it you are using up to date drivers for everthing else???

Also, make sure you uninstall your Matrox drivers before your install the new card and its drivers. At times there have been interactions between drivers that even standing on your head and praying to the computer gods wouldn't fix.
