Unfortunately, many Cyrix-based systems from this era are questionable 
-- they apparently played fast and loose with the specs, resulting in a

If you have access to one and have a bit of time to kill, try moving 
everything over to a similar Pentium or K6-2/3 system and see if the 
problems go away.
