I have a Win98SE computer with an Nvidia FX5500 PCI videocard.
With a clean install of
- windows 98 SE
- 81.98 nvidia drivers
- DirectX 9 installation
I cannot get 3D Mark 99 to start.
- First time it launches but upon clicking New Benchmark it simply quits before running the first test
- Second time it launches it shows a popup that I do not have a Direct X 6 compatible 3D card.
Also noticed that a lot of games don't want to play nice with this card (not accepting openGL / Direct3D, or simply crashing).
Is this an incompatibility between the FX5500 and windos 98 ? Or can this be fixed with video drivers / direct x versions ?
