How do I generate one from the MS-DOS version? I think I have version 6.1.3 by the way.

Either manually pressing F2 will save content of current screen into a LOG file, or automatically using the -r switch. Adding -d will also produce DBG file that contains some more details for me.

Here you go, I hope it helps. 😀

Thanks! It's useful for my reference and future improvements.
What DELL monitor is that, P2414H? This model isn't in my database yet.

Yesi it's a Dell P2414H 24" IPS, it is my daily work/browsing/multimedia/gaming monitor, pretty good budget monitor with a good panel 😀

Tested out an ATI Rage LT PRO AGP PCI card under 98SE on my Asus TUSL2-C test-bench, and noticed questionable clocks being reported. Frankly, not sure what the actual clocks for this card are supposed to be, but looking on Wikipedia, these don't look quite right. Was wondering if you could take a look at it Mumak. Thanks!

Frankly, I'm not sure here either. Clock detection here is implemented per documentation but I can't rule out cases where some additional/special clocking logic is involved.
Is there some other tool being able to report clocks that we can trust?

Not that I know of, no. Everest did not report clocks, Rivatuner224C provided nothing, and the drivers I used didn't provide any information. Maybe newer drivers would say something, but I'm doubtful.

Please find attached a report and debug file for my new toy, a Fujitsu Lifebook S6110 laptop running Windows 98SE. All seems to be in order but hopefully it helps with something anyway.

That little metal can on your GPU card is the clock crystal be wise to test it they vibrate silently to death. Also happens to old motherboards.
They are cheap to get though just that tedious surface mount job is all.

Not sure how you would test it. With a multimeter perhaps? Also, I've already recycled the card - it was causing a short somewhere, don't have the knowledge to diagnose it, and frankly don't care enough for such a strange card. 😒

theres a youtube channel with technicians of a computer museun they called CuriousMarc that demonstrates how to test clock crystals https://www.youtube.com/c/CuriousMarc/featured

SiS6326 had an AGP chip on PCI came in 4 to 8mb vram I recommend them as the pci solution of such a contraption if one was to look for them the SiS bios came out with bios upodate TSR programs that bios could be programmed into many system BIOS eliminating the onboard video bios (i took it off the card ran much faster)
