Display corrupted

By achobbies ·
Problem began with gray shaded horizontal lines throughout display. It has now gotten
to the point where I cannot start Windows 98 without going into safe or step by step mode.
Display settings have changed from 256 colors
to 16 and area from 600 x 800 to 480 x 640.
I have not detected a virus, but have gone to
MS-DOS mode and entered the command SCANPM C:/CLEAN/ALL with no change noted. Problem began shortly after downloading new version of Real Juke and associated Real items. I am
using McAfee Antivirus, but have had problems
downloading current Dat.files.

First thing i always do before anything else
is check display adapter(Device Manager) and if the driver
is okay.. then my second step would be try
another monitor...and so on
good luck!

You mean the display settings are at this setting when your in safe mode? They should be. What happens when you start normaly? Do you get any picture at all? If not try a dif monitor. Unless there was a virus attached to your DL there is no reason drivers would be affected by what you installed....but anythings possible with Ssuper Duper Microsoft Products. ;p

OK, here's my 2c:

Boot Win98 into safe mode, right-click on the Desktop, choose "Properties" and "Adapter" or so.

Choose "Advanced" and click on "Change", this will allow you to install the drivers of your display adapter.

Try to reboot into "Normal" mode and then change your screen resolution/colors.

If not possible then change your display adapter, check your monitor and cables.

Good Luck...

You most likely have corrupt video drivers. Use the instructions given in previous response to try uninstalling/reinstalling your video driver. If that doesnt work, swap monitors with a friend to make sure it isn't monitor. Lastly, consider swappingvideo cards with a friend(drivers also).

FIRST GO INTO RUN>MSCONFIG AND TURN OFF ANY AND ALL "REAL" ACCESSORIES THAT RUN AT STARTUP. ALSO REMOVE THEM FROM THE STARTUP FOLDER IN YOUR START MENU. THEY WILL OPEN FINE WHEN YOU NEED THEM YOU DON'T NEED THEM AT STARTUP. THEN REINSTALL DISPLAY DRIVER BY REMOVING YOUR DISPLAY ADAPTER IN DEVICE MANAGER AND REBOOT AND TURN GRAPHICS ACCELERATION DOWN A NOTCH OR TWO LIKE STATED IN ONE OF THE OTHER RESPONSES. I HAD ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS WITH REALPLAER STUFF UNTIL I TOOK IT OUT OF MY STARTUP.
