Hi saroj_nepal,

You should find a suitable driver for your videocard.

Greetings,

In case you don't know what videocard you have, you can use AIDA32 => http://www.aida.hu to identify it for you.
If it's a nvidia card, you should look at http://www.nvidia.com

Otherwise, you can always try http://www.driverguide.com (loginname: drivers password: all) and look for a driver there.

right click My Computer on the desktop, goto Properties, then click Device Manager, under Display Adapter, check which video adapter are u having ??
then goto the manufacturer site or search at the www.google.com for the drivers of the display adapter listed in the Device Manager.

And if u can;t see any display adapters then u should use the Aida utility suggested by LucF.
after that u have to search for the suitable and updated drivers for ur display adapter compatible to Win98.
download them and install them....reboot....and chech if ur problem has solved or not...otherwise come back and tell us :)

GOOD LUCK !!

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

Could be that you're using an incompatible display configuration for your video card. Some video cards can be fishy when configured to certain color depths at certain resolutions and refresh rates. Just about all video cards should be able to support 256 colors at 640x480 resolution. Set the refresh rate to adapter default as well.

Just some other factors that you may want to consider if you'd done the other suggestions here with no success.

Hope it helps
