I am running windows 98 and when I change my screen size/colors and it asks to reboot, I reboot, but when it reboots it doesn't save the new screeen size/colors. The system used to run at the newer screen size but not it doesn't. I went into safe mode and still no luck. I checked and am running the proper drivers etc. I do have the option for the new size/color, but it doesn't going into that mode. HELP!!!

Check the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\Display

In this registry key there should only be 1 key 0000

If there are more then 1 key delete them all and reinstall your video driver.

Should have added the following to my answer ...

ALWAYS backup your registry before making any registry changes.

Start->Run->regedit

In the regedit window

Registry->Export Registry File-> type in a filename and click Save

Then you can make the changes to the registry.
