What type of video adapter is it?  You may have to reinstall the video driver and software.  Some adapters use it's own software like ATI

Go back and undo what you did in msconfig.  Also, go into device manager, remove the video adapter, reboot.  Win98 will pick it up again.

The 810 chipset is real funky, you should comeup in safemode and double-check all devices under device manager and make sure you don't have a category other. Dave

I find that sometimes after my son has been on my PC all kinds of strange and un explainable things occur. An example the PC will not shut down. Well he tries to push the machine to the limits and causes me head aches!

Three things that I find to work:
1. This is not on your subjuct but not really documented anywhere which concerns the Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. To Fix this I go to I/R software, go to Internet explorer and double click and what appears is a FIX screen!

2. I try regclean in windows

3. I just install windows over the installed copy.

4. If a program was added, then I go to the C promt change to windows, then type in scanreg /restore

These are just comments and have a slim chance in your case, but try them if one appears applicable to your case.
