All 3D programs crash to the desktop

Microsoft Windows 98 se (full product)

Specs: 98SE, P-IV 1.4GHz/511MB
How come all of my games and 3D Mark benchmark crash to the desktop? They are all 98SE compatible and I have the August 2006 DX9C installed. My video card is a Radeon 8500 with the newest 98SE drivers. I have already put the hardware acceleration slider to Full.

Drop your ram to about 256 and try them again.

Moving back the hardware acceleration back one notch might also help, provided your games will run that way.

Unfortunately, decreasing the RAM or the hardware acceleration did not work. Is there anything else I can try?
Thanks

The only other thing I can think of is you may have too much stuff running in the background. Run MSCONFIG and check the 'startup' tab and see if there's anything there you can disable.
