NT4 video driver problem

Posted on 2005-04-08

I have a urgent problem here.
We are using a software that only run on NT4.
But the NT4 has no correct video driver. However, after I installed the driver, I could do a test high resolution and color with no problem. However, when I reboot the system, I will get "display setting invalid". It seems still loading the old default driver.
Then I tried to delete the old one from the registry. It then used the new one. Since the resolution was set too high, then I decrease one level down. But then nothing was shown on the screen after rebooting.
So is there anyway to change the resolution back, or go to any save mode?
What can I do about it?

Thanks a lot

    Have you tried using a different monitor(s) that can handle a higher resolution? I have had this issue before when setting up a 2000 or 2003 server at the office using a high res on my lcd and then when I go to the client to replace thier NT server and hook up to thier old server's monitor I could see anything and would end up tracking down a newer monitor in thier office so I could back down the res then hook back up to thier old monitor.
