Default Opengl Woes

Ok, here's my problem. When playing games that use opengl, I am experiencing very bad frame skipping. This has only started in the last month or two. My setup is:

Mobo: ECS K7S5A
CPU: AMD Duron @ 1.1ghz
Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 2 MX 400
OS: 98SE

I know that it's nothing special, but the very few games that I can play I would like to be able to play with decent frame rates and Direct X gives me terrible frame rates. My system runs pretty hot ie. 50C CPU temp during idle and upto 60C when playing games. I have also recently installed a new hard drive, if that makes any difference. Also, I only experience this when playing in fullscreen. In windowed, it's fine, but id like to be able to play in fullscreen because I get low enough fps anyway.

Motherboard drivers for the AGP bus?

Reinstall or uninstall and install again.

Certainly won't hurt, but that sounds like the GART problem occuring.

Just what is the GART problem?
Also, i'm not sure if i'm doing it right. I went to the sis website (who make my chipset) and selected the agp(gart) drivers. Is this what you meant?


EDIT: Tried un-installing then installing the drivers that I mentioned above and that didn't fix it
