I have an old AMD-K6 3D 500 processor (AMD cpuinfo.exe reports it as an AuthenticAMD) running W98SE. It had an SIS6326, which I replaced by a Rage Fury MAXX with the appropriate drivers. It runs, and allows me High Colour 1152x864 display.
I have tried to rebuild W98 on a blank disk, and after installing Directx8 & the Rage driver, it reboots and results in a completely black screen after trying to load windows. I can restore the (DriveImage) image of the disk as it was before I started the rebuild, and all is well again. Notes in an ATI readme mention AMD & black screens, and goes on to say it is essential to have the manufacturers GART driver installed.
I have searched everywhere and everyway I know, and am unable to locate one, other than the Windows® 98/98SE AGP Miniport Driver (http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce...71_2336~10834,00.html)
which makes no difference. Can anyone help, or tell me why I'm barking up the wrong tree?
