AMD K6-3 400 with Matrox G400 SH 16MB plugged in on Aopen AX59Pro
I Install WIN98 SE from Scratch.. No Problem
I restart and install the Matrox G400 Drivers (from CD-rom).. Restart and about 1 minute after windows startup. The Screen Freezes...
Is this a problem with my card, or did anybody here of conflict between AMD and other hardware?

As far as I know, nope....no problems with the G400 and AMD combo.

Have you load up any accompanying AGP Miniport drivers with mobo before installing G400 drivers?

one general rule, never ever use the drivers on the manufacturers cdrom, first make sure that you have a irq assigned to the card in the bios and that the irq that the g400 is using is 9 or higher AND THE G400 MUST ME ALONE ON ITS OWN IRQ it can share with the pci steering though. Also before installing the g400 drivers make sure you have the agp miniport drivers, latest directx and pci steering installed
