I installed Windows 98)(clean install) and ever since my monitor turns off after about 30 minutes use, it doesn't lose power but it just loses picture. If I turn it off then on it works for awhile. I checked the connections and that isn't the problem. If you know please help!

This sounds like power managment settings.
Click Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Power to disable it or make whatever corrections desired.
Let me know if you need more.

Check your CMOS setup for power management settings there as well.
Let me know if you need help with it.

When you turn on the computer, there is usually a key pressed to be used for entering the system setup.  It varies from on brand to the next but if it isn't displayed on-screen, try Del, F1, F2 Ctrl-Alt-Esc.
Once in the setup program, you select from a menu used for configuring the way your system uses it's installed components.
Find the setting for Power management and simply disable it.
Save & exit the program.
Hopefully this will correct the monitor shutdown problem.
Let me know what you find.
