Default GF4 - strange DX8 problems

Hello there, I've searched through most of this forum and others looking for a solution and have done lots of research for my problem.

Basically my GF4 crashes the system in a major way whenever I play a DirectX 8 game. Older versions of Dx seem to be OK, same with Open GL. But whenever I play a Dx8 game it crashes the system within about 10 seconds.

I have tried everything. Diff drivers, reinstalled DirectX etc. Tried diff AGP settings, AGP driving control etc. etc. I've booted win XP and win 98 (I know that the Abit KT7A has problems with GF4 Ti4x00's in XP but it still crashes in Win98.)

I would appreciate any help and advice you can give me as I'm really stumped, my friend Leonard has the exact same PC as me (he bought my 2nd LAN PC off of me) and we got 2 different brands of GF4 on the same day.

System specs are:-
AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz
512mb PC133 Ram
Abit KT7A Raid (Version 1.2)
GF4 Ti4200
Soundblaster Live!
10/100 Mbps NIC
56K Modem
Win 98 and XP Dual Boot (seperate partitions)
300W power supply.

I've notied that a lot of problems are due to power supplies but surely if it runs Open GL and older directx games, this is not the problem.

Once again Id really appreciate your help - thanks in advance!
