Well, I don't have any DOS on hand but 6.22... And it runs like a champ
under DOS, just not Windows.

>2. Use emm386.exe and smrtdrv from DOS, not from Win3.x

Done, unfortunately no effect.

>3. Under Win, use standard VGA-driver.

Even better, I went to compaq.com, found the exact driver I needed (hats
off to Compaq for having drivers for such an old product :). It STILL
freezes.

Grrr...

More info, it's a Compaq Contura 410 SLC, with a WD 24A2 display...

If this keeps up I'll just chuck it and install Arachne for web
browsing. :(
