Boot to safe mode via the F8 menu.

Open Display in Control Panel. Click the Settings tab. Click Apply. Click Yes in the box that opens warning you of the change. Then click Yes again in the reboot box that opens.

Reboot to normal mode. You'll have 640 x 480 resolution with 16 colors. You can then change that to something higher that's compatible with your monitor.

I'd guess the computer is shot. A lcd ought to be able to follow any display setting that 98 could product.

Just to be sure, remove the ac plug from the lcd and then plug it back it. That should force the monitor to re-sync even if the sync button was pushed.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
