double vision 2

By cganster ·
Sorry, didn't mean to reject answers,hit button by accident.I'm trying the proposed answers.By the way I should say I'm using win98 have a PCI modem and sound card. To explain askew and double vision. If your at the desktop,you would see 2 of all your icons with one being the real one (that works)and the other down and to the right and blurred. Same with apps, 2 screens one to the right and blurred.You can do a print sceen and the printout is correct. Hope this helps and sorry for quick rejection of answers.

2 best guesses: Turn of any video caching in the bios, run a standard VGA driver; and make sure the unit is not overheating (run the computer with the cover off)

Next best thing if you can swing it is stick in a spare hard drive with a vanilla Win98 install and see if it replicates the problem. (always good to have for weird hardware related problems)

Short of that boot, in safe mode. If it runs ok then boot into Win98 and ctrl-alt-del to shut down every running app except explorer.

In my previous answer to 'double vision' I mentioned :
1. boot to DOS and
2. boot in safe mode Windows.

Because you have windows 98, make 2 above into 3 and use this for 2. : in Windows, run msconfig, go to the startup tab, and disable everything except things like system tray, taskbar display, & scan registry. You may also try disabling items in config.sys and autoexec.bat if you know what you are doing, otherwise its better to just go to step 3. boot Windows in safe mode.

Boot into DOS mode. If the screen is normal then your Windows video driver is the problem. If the screen is still messed up it's either your monitor or video card. Swap the monitor, if it fixes the problem, then your monitor was bad, otherwise you video card is the problem.

Good Luck!

I had the same thing happen a couple of weeks ago. I opened up my case and installed an extra fan, pointed it at the voodoo card and left the case open, cooled off the card and restarted. No more problems.
