Why am I getting crappy 3dmarks on my ti4200? My score is 6800!

OK, I have a AD11 motherboard from FIC, 512 2100 DDR, a ti4200 128mb, and a 1600+ AMD. I have updated all of my drivers in Windows 98 SE. I am using DirectX 8.1b. I have the most recent bios. I have virtually nothing running on my system but the bare essentials ( systray ... ), and the 98 is a fresh install. The only thing not up to snuff is the updates on 98 ( I have a dial up, and I havn't got them all yet ). My brother-in-law has a almost identical system with EXACT same card as me, and he is marking in the uper 8000's like everyone else. My BIOS has the AGP set to 4X. What am I missing? Is there a problem with the AD11 Mobo's? Help!

The first you could do is to swap cards with your brother to see how it gets.

Do you have the latest Via 4-in-1 drivers? This is, of course, assuming that board has a Via chipset.

My brother-in-law lives out of town, but I do plan on swapping this card into a different similiar system to see if it benchmarks OK there.

And to the previous question: Yes, I have the update 4in1 drivers. I am also freshly updated in Windows 98 with everything I can find. The score hasn't budged :(

Maybe it's the drivers... The 40.41s improved scores in 3D Mark a lot.

Little update. I set my system with a dual boot XP, and tried it in that. I recieved an A.OK mark 85??. So, it must be in my 98 install. Thanx for the help.
