    Welcome to TechSpot Forums mike_om

    Is this a new pc you built yourself? Or a branded PC?
    Detonator drivers are notorious for problems when changing between versions.
    What other hardware do you have installed? Post system specifications.
    In the Device manager (accessed via control panel in ME I think) do you have any devices listed with a yellow exclaimation mark indicating an IRQ conflict?

    You should uninstall the old ones first via "Add remove programs" in the control panel.
    Then for 98SE and ME use the Detonator Destroyer when changing between versions. It removes any files which are not removed in the Nvidia Detonator uninstall process.

    If its a computer you built yourself, then do you have the latest chipset drivers for the motherboard?

    I'll be able to give a more useful response when you provide some more details.
