I have just installed a new video card and new latest drivers for it. I seem to have some refresh rate problems crashes and the like. I would like to know.
1 should I flash the bios
2 How do I get into Dos Real mode to run the flash program that I have.
3 Should I take my sons baseball bat, destroy my computer and go and do something outside. :roll:
Thanks for any help

Here's a depressing tale: ... adeon+7000
Leaving multimonitor support issues/machines with on-board video aside, are you sure that the PSU is powerful enough ?

To get into DOS real mode, as you're running W98 you can create a bootable diskette using format/copy system files.
