I have a celeron 333 w/built in video and I just replaced the power unit for a friend. I am using my monitor and when I boot I show the win 98 screen clearly but when it finishes booting I get a bunch of horizontal lines like it has the wrong video driver. Since I can't see the program to reset the driver, how do I resolve this. I thought by going into the bios I could change something but I dont see anything in there that might help. Do I have to get his monitor or is there something else wrong that I am not thinking of right now?

when it is booting up tap the F8 key to get you to the startup menu, then choose "safe mode"
from there you can change the driver or remove then reinstall the video card.

It sounds like maybe your monitor will not handle the resolution or something, you may just want to change to 256 colors with a 640 X 480 screen

I had the same your problem 6 months ago. I did replace video on board with other video PCI card: no help, on monitor sitll had strange image. Finally, the power supply was culprit. I did replace Power Supply and the problem was gone. I dont know why...
