After I built it I installed Windows 98SE and it installed just fine. However, I'm running into some issues when installing the drivers. There are three devices that are not yet installed after a clean install:NVIDIA GeForce MX4000C-Media CMI8738Realtek RTL8139A (Onboard)I honestly expected there to be more drivers left to install, but only these three apparently. Even the USB-ports work in the clean install.
Thank you for your reply. Version 45.23 of the driver was released before the GeForce 4 MX4000 was released, so this version will most likely not support my graphics card, correct me if I'm wrong. I've tried all NVIDIA driver versions that support the MX4000 by now. With different results, but no matter what version I use, the PC will never boot when the driver is installed.
I've tried all your recommendations so far, as for the graphics card, but nothing had worked so far. I have tried every single graphics driver for the GeForce MX4000 by now; 56.64 causes the computer to freeze on the bootscreen after reboot, 61.76-71.84 results in a blank black screen after the bootscreen after reboot, 77.72-81.85 will give me a message after reboot that the setup is configuring my hardware, but it will never get pass that message and 81.98 destroys the OS completely. The BIOS is really shitty; I do not have a lot of options and there is no way to unlock the hidden BIOS-options. I did manage to set the \"Plug & play boot options\" to \"External AGP\". I think this setting disables the onboard SiS650 graphics. @bjwil1991 it's an AGP-card.
Could it be the same case as mineI just finished setting my retro PC. I have a FIC VI39L mobo. It is stated it supports AGP 4x (so, no 8x at all), but since I bought the whole kit, ok, let's do it.After installing W98 it's all okay. After that I tried to install the MX4000 drivers and, after restarting, my W98 simply freezes before even reaching the desktop.Every time I use safe mode it works decently. Same for when I uninstall MX4000 drivers. But, anyway, I tried with two executables for these drivers. Fortunatelly I managed to delete those files responsible for Windows trying to install the driver every initialization. And, to finish, I did find info about MX4000 supporting both 4x/8x, but I don't really know what to believe.The thing is: with the drivers, my PC freezes, without drivers, it works decently. So, what's the real deal Can I run games or other things even without the drivers
Everything working until I start race,text shows on screen and when it show 'Ready.' application crushes. I can change options and customize race,it working. I tried all races but it is same. I use nvidia-96xx proprietary driver.This is terminal output: 781b155fdc
