I would tend to doubt that an Intel FX chipset board would recognize an AMD

also.

old Packard Bell 486 - Windows 3.1 question for those who still remember how to use it

Hello!

Open Win 3.1, Program Manager, select Options

Make sure that "Save settings on Exit" is checked.

Make sure that PM is full size when closing Windows.

Let me know if that fixes it.
