Monitor Display and Driver Problem
I recently inherited an old desktop computer with Win98. It has 2 problems which may be interrelated.
1) When you startup, the error message "DriHWP32.dll not found or damaged". I click OK and it goes away. I don't know what effect this has. I searched on google and found a MSKB article which said the fix was to reinstall kbturbo.exe, but that was if you had some special keyboard (which it doesn't). I searched on the computer for anything like kbturbo, but to no avail.
2) I can't change the monitor display from 600 and 16 colours.
Does anyone know whether these 2 things are related? I have included (hopefully) relevant information below about the computer.
