Hi djjdog. Welcome to the AMD Forum!

What is the error that you are getting ???
I believe that any ***.vxd file is a video device driver, and it must be specific to your particular system, because I just did a 'Find files or folders' on two Win98 systems, and neither one has the file you quoted on it.

When I checked a third Win98 system that is running an add-on vid card AND a K6-3+ 450, it has that driver in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32 folder.
So, since it's not always a part of Win98, what is it? A driver for your vid card?

I think it's time to ask you to please, do everybody a favor, and put everything that you currently know about your system's specifications into your 'Signature' by hitting 'Profile' (at the top of every page), then scroll down and 'paste' all your details into the 'Signature:' box that appears.

Milt's right - we need some more information here, as much as possible because it could be a number of things relating to hardware or software.

Your memory type and quanity will be important, as well as your CPU voltage/frequency settings. What is the address of the error and is it the same every time?

Can you try the memory in another machine? If it's mixed memory then that is best avoided in general no matter what machine you use it on.

On the software side it's important to state what is being loaded when Windows loads, as well.

One thing you could try to check hardware stability, is to run the chip at 400MHz and see if the problems persist. If it does, run with the side panels removed.

I thought it was Win95 that had the problems with K6s
