Appreciate some assistance.

In a W98SE PC, having all sorts of video problems, and tried to uninstall driver control software for a 3D Rage PRO AGP 2X card.

The entry in Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs keeps comming up with message:

(Red X) Rundll32
This program has performed an illegal operation...
RUNDLL32 caused invalid page fault in module ATIIIEXX.DLL at 0167:1000f205.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling card and its drivers, but nothing works. The entry in CP remains.

Also tried to install another video adapter card Matrox (PCI), but Windows does not even recognize it. (The BIOS was set to PCI for the Matrox.)

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

Can you install another driver for the Ati card by using the "update driver" wizard and select from drivers options already present on the system? If so, try that first and then an uninstall. Try just installing standard vga drivers if necessary.

Thanks for the reply, Rollin' Rog.

Tried all of the above, but no-go. The ATi card just does not work right, no matter what is done with it.

Finally ended up using TweakUI to get rid of the entry in Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.

Installed a Matrox card.
