Hello...

When I turned on computer this am, came up in safe mode. I ran AVG antivirus & ad-aware after I got machine up again.

Problem is now it won't let me control monitor settings. I go into Display/Settings/Screen area and move cursor off 680 pixels. I reboot and it never takes. As soon as I hit Apply, it asks "reboot" I say yes, it does, but never takes hold.

Any ideas?

Thanks Jeannie

If you have the software for the video card, re-install it

If you do not know the make and model of video card


Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Keith,

There were two choices for the driver one for win 98*Guest and the other for win 9x and I chose win9x. Should I try the other one?

Off with her head!!
