I recently refomatted my Gateway and reinstalled Win 98. However after installation, the text appears blurry kind of like when you start in safemode. Should I reinstall or do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

I think you might need to install a Win 98 driver for your video adapter.

Try this

Go to control Panel
Display Programs
Settings
Advanced

Then there should be a button that says "change" click on it. Then you should be able to change your driver. I would put the 98 disk in and have windows locate the driver from the disk. If there is not one, then find out what video adapter you have (it should say in the advanced window and search microsoft.com for a new driver or google.com for the manufacturer's site that may have a win 98 driver to download, then go through same process again after you download the driver and specify wherever you downloaded the driver to)

I tried to reinstall the driver. It says it's a Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA). I couldn't find anything on Microsoft, but I did reinstall it by just going through Add New Hardware Wizard. Any other suggestions as this didn't work?

Search the web for an updated win 98 driver and download it. What are the details of the adapter, I'll help you find it.

Click Download this File on the right side of screen. You will have to register to download this. I have registered a few times and they always give me this.

So try that if you want and see if it works.

Thanks. Found the new driver. Win 98 apparantly installs the wrong one.
