A small problem started last night with the screen going black. Hence after that at every start up it stayed black when windows tried to start.
I have now managed to get it to start in safe mode and it also now starts in normal mode but if I try to change the resolution it wont start and the black screen of death returns.
I am therefore limited to 16 colours and 640 by 480 pixels.
I did a scanreg/fix and it determined some errrors but was unable to fix and suggested to install windows to a new directory.
SFC scan came up with no problems.
All suggestions would be appreciated.
Its a windows 98 o/s.
