Do you have the display properties set to "Apply without restarting"?. If so, try requiring a restart. As well as video card drivers it sometimes helps if your monitor is recognized exactly by manufacturer and model. Generic Plug and Play does not always work. If you cannot find the exact monitor driver (it just describes it's capabilities) try to get as close as possible.
I need help with something that is really foxing me.
For some reason when I chose the appearance tab in display properties and click on Apply after I've changed the colours, icon size or font/size or anything you can change there ... display properties stops responding and I can't even click on OK. So I have to use the Ctrl+Alt+Del to close it down.
I've downloaded updated drivers; re-installed 98se and absolutely nothing works ... I do not want to format, I've not had chance to do a backup and don't want to lose anything I have downloaded in the way of Free programs.
I'd be grateful for any idea that works that I haven't tried. I have tried changing through Safe Mode but you can't get the colours to be just how you want also my mouse is USB. I live in the UK.
