By ls2450 ·
what could cause my athlon, 750 mhz, to freeze up when the windows 98se desktop appears and then when turned on again, the monitor doesn't show anything. the computer comes on though, but will not read a drive.

thank;

Is your video card an AGP card? If so try reseating it. AGP slots are notorious for contact problems.

Push F8 when the computer is first booting up and choose boot-up in safe mode. While in safe mode right click on the desktop and choose properties go to settings, advanced set the refresh rate for your video adapter card to adapter default, click apply. Reeboot into normal mode. You might even have to choose your video adapter (Nvidia). If you get your screen back you might have to fine tune the refresh rate.
