  1. hello im using pci-e geforce gainward 6800gs 512mb with driver 77.72 without problems in win98se. but i like to ask something is normal in the dxdiag the chip type and dac type to be n/a? in directx features the agp texture accelaration is disabled but i think thats normal since i use pci-e. also the hw id for this card is PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00C0&SYBSYS_080110B0&RE thanks in advance
  2. try to disable audio to your games and unplug the usb audio device just to eliminate the sound device issue. try with dma on and off. also see if multiple device are sharing the same irq. i had the same problem as you and the problem was diferent device share the same irq the so called interupt conflict a fix from @rloewwas needed and the issue ends.
  3. ok this patch works i push the system hard for 2.5 hours now and another 2 hours in he morning and no interrupt issues. before the patch 1 hour was the best scenario. so if anyone have interrupt issues on irq 11 give him the patch without fear. hope the other irq fixes are excellent coded like the 11 fix.
  4. i had try older nvidia drivers same issues. the only good thing older drivers gives the 77.xx i think, is that i can properly shutdown computer without the protection error. newer drivers gives the protection error. im interested for your interrupt fix how it costs? just for knowledge what exacly that patch is doing? its try to map free bios iqrs to the devices that sharing the same in order not to have the same iqr? or it changes the way software speak to hardware in order the issue to disappear? @98SEnow i see your question about how much memory my 98 see. using himemx with the parameter /max=785000 it detects 768mb ram
  5. and its come down to this bsod TESTEOI TESTEOI detected missing EOI press any key to continue but the keyboard is not fuctioning, nether i see mouse pointer to move
  6. @rloewthanks for your help. i will try and i will tell you.
  7. i will explain the behaviors in need for speed underground 2, first the sound stops the keyboard stop working and the mouse stops and after a second a lockup and after 1 minute a bsod. in quake 4 the music stops the keyboard stops. but the game is working i can use mouse to turn-shoot a bsod didnt apeare. my mouse is conected on ps/2 port in the back, and my keybord is usb. the hard drive controllers the vga card the pci soundblaster 2 of 3 usb controllers share the same irq its 11 btw
  8. oups my bad i was in a hurry and see a wrong pci device. no its irq 11 the ichi pci card. probably a canflict issue as you say but i cant change the interrupt to other number any ideas?
  9. yes hdd controllers soundblaster pci card and pci-e card have interrupt 11. but if i put in the bios the ahci mode the sata controllers will disappear a pci card will appear (yellow color) this have interrupt 10. but the issue remains. the next thing i will try is to disable virtual ram so the drive wont have to write the win386.swp file just to eliminate some disk access.
  10. 256 mb of video card is fine. mine is a 512mb pci-e and the patch isnt needed its a 6xxx series i thing the nvsize patch is needed for 512mb 7xxx series card
  11. after the last crash i let the pc open, and after a while a bsod with mesage cant access drive c. i will continue with further changes
  12. ive run to some problem when i play those games need for speed undergound 2 and quake 4 after an hour either games freeze completely, only dos games arent affected, the sound stop first and 1 second later the system freeze and the pc lockups. that happends on need for speed 2. the quake 4 after an hour give this behavior the sound stops the game didnt completly freeze and leave only the mouse to work. and the keyboard not responding leave me no choice to hard reset my pc. my gpu is a pci-e gainward gforce 6800 gs 512 mb. im using the tweaked 8269 driver the gpu is installed in the second pci-e slot it called pcix4. non default bios changes i made are 1 disable the hyperthreating 2 disable the 3 of 4 cpu cores. and instead of ahci i use ide in sata configuration with the sata patch. i use the himemx from freedos instead of himem.sys because the ms himem.sys didnt work for me. in order to minimize my 8gb to 512 mb system memory i edit system.ini in the [386Enh] i write MaxPhysPage=20000 i also test the video card in my win10 installation using the latest drivers they are for win8 btw and everything is ok i also test the nvsize demo patch but reporting that everything is allocated correct and no patching needed. any ideas?
  13. mm difficult task i imagine. when i first install 98 i had in bios the ahci mode in device manager there was a yellow pci device now that i have ide with the patch that devive is gone i bet that was the ahci controller. what i mean is it will be a good challenge for skilled persons like you guys to write a modded driver.
