I'm using a Leaktek 7350KDA (SIS 735 chipset) with a Radeon 8500 LE (built by ATI from newegg) and having problem in win 98se. I got random lockup with vertical stripes on the screen and i suppose this is the problem of the video card at first. So i switch to another new Radeon 8500LE and still having the same problem. I tried almost everything (swap ddr ram, swap the ddr slot, reseated the video card, underclock the cpu, memory and video card, reformat and install the os, trying different set of ATI drivers and SiS GART drivers, switch off AGP fastwrite, change to AGP 2X etc....) but still having the same problem. So i check the AGP voltage and find out the power supply only supplying 1.47 V to the AGP slot. I was wondering could this be the problem and do i have to get another power supply? For your information i'm using an Antec PP352X (350 watt power) for:

XP 1700+
386 PC2100 DDR ram
1 40 GB hard drive
1 Cdrom
3 80mm fans
1 floppy drive
Radeon 8500 LE 64 MB DDR
On board sound
and a PCI ethernet card
Case temp 30 Celcius
Cpu temp 46 Celcius

Desperately need help, thanks for any replies.

I don't know how much this helps, but if I'm not mistake, AGP 2.0 (which supports AGP 4x) runs at 1.5V, so having it run at 1.47V shouldn't make a significant difference. However, there may be some setting in your bios that lets you set your AGP voltage. It'll probably give you AUTO, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7. Give it a shot, see if it makes a difference.
