    Changed from NT to Win 98

    Recently, a friend removed Windows NT from his computer (400MHZ) and did a clean install of windows 98 SE. All seemed to go well.
    Since then, his IBM Monitor 6546 G52 no longer works correctly when he down loads graphics or displays other pictures on the screen.
    The colours of images are not as full as they should be.
    When I checked his display properties I couldn't adjust the resolution from 640X480 and the only colour options are 2 or 16 colours.
    Previously, he was able to surf the net using NT and get very acceptable images with the same monitor. By the way, he is and was not on a network so network client has been removed.
    What's the problem with Win 98? The monitor is recognized and is named but no longer does it do what it was capable of with NT.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Jack

    You have the MS generic drivers in stalled. You need to down load the drivers for the graphic card that you have from their site and install them.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave:
    Thanks to your advice, my friend's monitor now works just fine. I told him about your help but he still thinks I'm a genius. I didn't try too hard to disuade him.
    What a great place this lounge is!!
    Regards,
    Jack

    Jack, the truth will set you free. Well, sometimes anyway. <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23> Oh and by the way when you remove a system that had all your drivers for your hardware on it, you also set them free. I think they go toward the light or something like that. Poor drivers died before there time. The Grim Re-format killed them. <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31>
