GeForce Annihilator pro / MB AOpen AK72

Hi,

I've a BIG problem building my new pc.

here are the components:
K7 700
128 MB 133Mhz
MB AOpen AK72 (chipset KX 133)
and ... the problematic GeForce DDR from Creative.
OS: Win98 rev B / directX 7a / original driver from Creative

The problem is simple: it won't work correctly... When booting, I have some graphics problems (logo win98 with bad characters, red phantom on characters,...) and under windows some screen frozen up or graphics bugs ect...

Is it normal? Is it just a problem of drivers? is there something special to do on the bios?

Thx for helping me!

Check creative website for updated drivers for athlon processors. Not all boxed drivers operate well with AMD Athlon.

Are the graphics bugs happening on a cold boot (when showing the memory test) normal for a GeForce?

You can also try NVIDIA website. They provide drivers that work well with the GFORCE according to Creative.

Thx all for your help. Finally I found the problem and ... it was the modem (3com Us Robotics) which works perfectly with my old TNT2 and don't want my GeForce... I 've bought an external Cirrus V90 and no problem remaining.

So here are 150 points

CU an this site!
