after installing windows 95 on a new system, every thing was running great and then I was had to reboot after loading a device driver, which isn't part of the problem, I was prompted that win.95 has detected new hardware, which was my monitorit then said that it was loading the software to handle the monitor then the system rebooted , no problem there, then on the dos screen it said starting win.95,
and then the screen flickered like the desktop was trying to load this is where the problem is the sceen goes blank..
is this because maybe the monitor isn't compatiable with my video card ??? please help
