I have a NEC 9522 75 mhz pentium.  The colors on the screen started getting mixed up the night before, then today, when I tried to boot up, the machine goes to power saving mode, and when the message hit esc to exit or f2 to enter setup comes up, and I choose either one, the machine just locks up with a dark screen.  Could this be a video card gone bad?  I can't figure out a way to get into setup, where I wanted to disable the power saving mode.
Thanks,
Alan

Maybe you can try running Win95 in Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key just after the beep sound during system boot-up. You should be able to enter Win95

Make sure the cable connections to the card are all ok. Then if the problem pursists, try and put the card into a different slot, if you can. If you can enter Windows, you can see if you can disable the card's power saving mode via the control panel's display control. Otherwise good luck....
