resolution problem on aptiva pc
Posted on 2001-07-16
I booted up on the aptiva with win98 and it locked up. I rebooted with ctrl-alt-del. The pc went into lo-res protected mode. The screen said that after the first boot-up, I could reset to hi-res, reboot, and all would work. Instead, I am stuck in lo-res. I increase the resolution
and it skips the "apply" step (i.e., it does not test the screen resolution). Then it goes to "reboot-yes or no?"
If I press either yes or apply, I can see it resetting to lo-res. I tried reboot with "Ctrl" held down. I have selected both "normal" and protected modes, yet nothing changes. please advise.
