Display problem, "no windows land" at top of desktop.
Posted on 2000-03-11
Pentium 200, 64 mb ram, win98 se on top of win95. Problem started with crash of Matrox video card which would work fine at 16 colors, booting into windows, however, screen went crazy. Replaced card with StealthII S220. Loaded software from Diamond site including Intools98. As boot up progresses, everything is fine, desktop icons fill desktop dispay area top to bottom. At end of boot, icons drop about 1/7 of the desktop size downward to what I will call and imaginary line. The green "wallpaper" and display size remain constant. I cannot move open windows above this imaginary line created about 1/7 of screen size from top. Icons can be moved "under" the imaginary line as if it were a rug. The balance of the display area (approximately 6/7) is usable. I have totally removed all Matrox references, removed stealth card, installed third card by digital reasearch. The problem continues to exist. I failed to make a copy of system.1st before I re-installed win98 ( in desparation). I have scoured the registry as well as I can, but to no avail. Anybody have an answer? Thank you.
