    Can anyone suggest how to overcome this problem? The system runs very stable
    if I turn of the graphics hardware acceleration off (setting 2) but then it
    doesn't run the game I was trying to play (Total War: Shogun).

    Is there any known problems with this combination?

    I reformatted and re installed win98se and new versions of all the drivers
    in june 2002.

    Any suggestions?

    I have a P5A rev 1.06. BIOS 1007, 256 MB RAM

    Just today i checked ALI web site (www.ali.com.tw) and downloaded the latest
    drivers for chipset 1543C: Ali IDE Busmaster and the Integrated driver.
    Install the busmaster driver first and then make sure you check the IDE
    utility when installing the Integrated driver (2.05)

    I can't help you out with graphics cards and games, as i don't play on my
    PC. Anyway, if you want good advice, post a detailed description of your
    hardware, BIOS settings, driver versions and problem. Without these, nobody
    will be able to help you.
