Heh...no, I don't think so. These are brand new systems that Adrian and I were setting up. In my instance, the motherboard wasn't even in its case yet, I had just opened up the package, hooked everything up and was still testing it on top of a cardboard box. There wasn't even enough time for dust to even THINK about getting on it when these strange instances occured. ;)

And as far as static energy is concerned, I always use a static wrist strap when building new systems, so that can't be it either.

It just HAS to do with Asus messing with our heads. ;) :D

I got this board to OC with an ATi card in it. I have a 8500le 64MB . I dont know exactly what i did. I have upgraded from 98se to xp pro, but im sure i tried to OC after that upgrade and i didnt work. Also bought a 2400+. Anyway i had to reset my bios for some reason and the FSB gets set back to 100MHz. So while putting it up to 133MHz i decided to try it a bit higher and , WOOT , it holds fine. Have OC'ed to 2.3 gigs on stock with the ATi card.

@esro mazrin

For Win XP, try resettings the bios, then Win XP may load. Does it stop at the point, ' Windows is inpecting your hardware configuration' ?

First time poster so please don't shoot me.

Recently purchased ASUS A7N266 VM + lots of goodies
Anyway put everything in the case, all fitted nicely. Fired it up, formatted, installed Win 98, everything fine. Followed the manual with the installation of drivers for Win98, did the first three, again fine. Tried to install audio drivers not fine. Got bounced between the win98 cd and the Asus cd. Then things got really bl***y interesting. The Graphics card I got for it is a Gainward FX5600 (Ultra 780 TV/DVI 256MB RAM), installed the drivers and eerything was fine or so i thought. Put on 3DBenchmark 2000 and 2003, and Aquamark. Try running these benchmarks and it monumentally stuffs up saying "Invalid call" or "Could not initialise 3D Accelerator".

Any ideas please cos at the moment it's just a very expensive neon light!! (yes its sad but it came with the case!)

Jim

@ the post above .

To solve all your problems get rid of win 98 and get xp. end of story.

I hear what you are saying, but I'm stuck with Win98 at the moment. Any other ideas except throwing money at Bill Gates?

@James

I really wouldn't confide on any drivers that came with the original CD as a lot has changed since the mobo's release. I would first download the latest chipset drivers from NVidia ( http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_win9x_2.41 ), latest video card driver, etc and store it all in one easily accessible folder. Then, uninstall your graphics drivers, whatever sound drivers you have (what are you using for sound? the motherboard's implementation or a seperate sound card??), your motherboard chipset drivers, etc. Reboot.
1. Install the new chipset drivers FIRST. This should contain your sound drivers also if you're using the motherboard's implementation. Reboot.
2. Install the new video card drivers. Reboot.

If this doesn't work and then your drivers may not have uninstalled properly and maybe conflicting with each other. In that case, re-install Win98 and install the newest downloaded drivers right afterward.

i'm always install my modem and connect to internet using windows "dial up networking" that is in "Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Communications". ihear thre is another way to connect to the internet without using dial up networking. could someone tell me how?

Heh...there are many ways to connect to the internet without having to use dial-up networking. ;) If you're considering broadband which would mean that you have a Cable or DSL modem connected to the internet all the time, then as long as your computer is on, it is always connected to the internet. You would need a Cable modem or DSL modem for that connection and it is connected to the PC through a ethernet cable (so it is as if you're computer is on a network) or it can be connected through a USB cable if you're modem supports it. I'm not sure of your local area but some of the big ISPs that provide broadband connection are Cox, Comcast, Qwest, etc.) You'd have to find what's available to you locally. There are other ways but perhaps the above would be most feasible for you. ;)

If you're asking if there's another way to connect to the internet through dial-up without having to use the MS dial-up networking software, then this would have to depend on your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Some ISPs use their own proprietary dial-up software while other will allow you to download/use other shareware/freeware dial-up software. To tell you the truth, all dial-up software/connections are pretty much the same. The real fun begins when you decide to go broadband. :D
