Re: [SLE] Corel - some good news for a change



Must be the luck of the Irish! :)

But, seriously, there IS an issue with it... no exceptions. If they haven't
had any problems, then they more than likely will [BSOD - kernel.vxd issue].
It is a well known problem with the AMD 350+ in Win95... it was a memory
timing issue.

Of course, if you put PC66 SDRAM in (Pre 1998) then this slows the memory
timing down to 66MHz, therefore bypassing the memory timing problem... this
in turn makes the system run slower than the normal 350+ machines that
SHOULD have PC100 memory in as these run at a 100MHz backbone
