ATI Radeon VE card compatibility issues

By TMan_182 ·
I recently installed an ASUS A7V-E motherboard with a 1 GHz processor and a 32 meg ATI Radeon VE video card. Now when everything was setup in Windows 98, Windows showed everything as working properly, no conflicts. But whenever I try to run an application that requires Direct3D support or any kind of card acceleration, the screen makes odd patterns or goes black and the system locks up. I tried setting the Windows Graphic acceleration lower, seemed to help, but then games cannot be run. Any suggestions would be welcome.

First check the manufacturers web site for a fix that maybe available,because of past postings of this type
Check to see what version of active X you have and then dowload the latest version

I already have the latest drivers for my video card and motherboard. What type of ActiveX am I looking for? There seems to be many available for download.

Another thing I forgot to mention:
The computer that is having issues does not have internet access or anything internet related installed on it, if that means anything.

I have had an instance when I've loaded the Manufactures drivers from the CD, and was not compatible with my OS or the card did not function correctly, try downloading the most current drivers from the Web, and check this site for the best versions for Active X;
