I am running a duel boot system with Win 2000 and Win Me. I have got an S3 Savage 4 16 meg card (sexy aye). It runs fine in Win 2000, but if I load Me the system either freezes or crashes. I have d/l'd the drivers from the s3 archive, with no luck. Any suggestions?

Can you get into ME in safe mode? have you just replaced another card with this new one.

1. Blame Mircrosoft

2. But if that doesn't work, then I would suggest attempting to get the OS to ignore the video card (you decide how :P) and see if the OS itself is fine.

Of course that may sound stupidin which case, go back to 1.

Yep. Safe mode works fine. I replaced a GF2MX200.

I have put it in a different machine that I use for games.

Try updating the driver in safe mode, if that doesnt work, get back to Pf1. That should fix it, just make sure its the latest driver would be my suggestion. Also, make sure that its not still looking for the old card.
