I have a ThinkPad 1412 with windows 98.
12.1 active matrix TFT.

I reinstalled win98. Now I have 640X480 of resolution instead of 800X600 or 1024X768; (don't remember wich one I had, the higher I think). And I have only 16 colors naturelly.

Here is what It's write in the System Propertiies:

Display Adapters: Standard PCI graphics(VGA)
Monitor: Unknown

How can I correct this without use the CD Recover, because I don't want to loose my datas?
