graphics display not right

Laptop Compaq Presario 1232, Fdisk and reformated HD. Using Win98se. Used default setting. I wrote down all info before starting project, however when I try to update the graphics adapter to the one that was working before (NewMagic MagicGraph 128zv the screen goes blank except for several dots a the very top of the screen. Could those few dots in one line,  BE the desktop? seems that when I move the mouse they change colors. When I reboot, by the power button since I can't find shutdown, it goes to scandisk. I can reboot from a floppy and the Win98cd, however.

Boot to safe mode by holding the ctrl key down as it boots. This will bring up the boot menu choose safe mode. Then you can change the driver for the display adapter and the monitor. If the display adapter is useing the corect driver it may be that the monitor is not.
