    Hi. I have a verto geforce2 MX200 32 meg SDRAM and it wont work. The motherbord is a FR500 SiS 5598 cyrix 6x86 MII MX. what it does is crash crash crash no matter what i do. im using REV 2.00 bios that i got from the packard bell support site. The other bios versions(original and 2.04) refuse to load windows98 after getting through the device checking IF I enable "assign IRQ to VGA", it will just stop responding. Seems as if i need that setting to work in order to install the drivers for the card. I've tried to insstall the drivers anyway with directX8.0 and i can get to the win98 splash screen and it will RESTART my computer after i install the drivers. Also, on the packard bell support page it says something about my PCI bus settings and the IRQ table. I looked and sure enough in the IRQ routing status area"IRQ stering disabled/IRQ table has some errors"(and windows98 likes to crash every time i go there:mad: )what should I do? I will supply any additional information quickly if required Thank you

    I gave up trying to install graphics cards on Packard Bells earlier this year, they just don't want you to do it. Sorry I can't be of any specific help but the few I've tried I've failed on all occassions.
