A few remarks:
1. It's sound practice with classroom computers to make an "image" of the hard disk after finishing the install, so you can go back if they mess it up.
2. You mention a "monitor driver", but you don't mention the driver for the video card. I'd start with reinstalling that.
3. If all else fails, there are 2 viable options:
a. Clean install of Windows and all original drivers. Then make the disk image.
b. Install another video card that comes with Windows 98 drivers.
Best of luck.
we donated our old computer to my son's 2nd grade classroom a few months ago - it is a gateway system running windows 98 with an optiquest L700 monitor. before i took it in i cleaned the whole system and just installed a few educational games for the teacher along with word. there is a wireless card but it has not been hooked up to the router yet so no one has been online.
No idea what the kids were doing but now the resolution is set at lowest settings - when i go into screen properties and try to change to 256 colors or a higher resolution i get a window that says i need to restart in order for the new settings to take effect but when it reboots it does not reset. if i go into advanced settings on the display screen and check "do not have to restart" i can see the resolution resetting to the lowest when i click ok and the window is closing.
I downloaded the driver for the monitor and reinstalled it. no luck. in device manager there does not appear to be any conflicts under video or monitor.
any ideas??? at the lower resolution none of the programs will run! thanks in advance from me and a second grade class :)!
