I tried to upgrade the driver of my Intel740agp card from version PV 3.2 to PV 4.09, now I get a windows protection error because of "GFXVFW" on every time I boot, shortly after that It shows the "now safe to shutdown" screen, the only way to run windows 98se now (at miserable 640*480@16 colors) is to start in failproof mode and removing the supposed to work 3.2 driver wich was detected the last session, then rebooting (and telling it not to do so after the auto hardware detection).
The computer is a CyrixM2@300 with 96 ram and it worked fine with the intel 740 for over a year now.
Maybe i should reinstall the whole OS...
If anyone knows another way of getting the settings back to a decent screen resolution and color depth, and more important, to be able to start windows without that nasty protection msg, please let me know.
