Killer green pickett fence

By kidmed ·
I have a nice "typical" Caliber Corp 350 pentium computer running Win98
Downloaded WinfaxPro from there web site
--
Now when I double click the 'exe' file to install, I get a killer green picket fence pattern across the top of the screen and everything freezes, including CTRL_ALT_DEL reboot. Ever seen this ?

Sounds like the installer and your video driver aren't getting along.

The installer is attempting to set a full screen video mode that your video card either doesn't support, or doesn't like.

Try seeting your video to either 16bit, or 256 color before running the installer.

Chas's reply is a good one; also try going to your videocard manufacturer's website and checking to make sure you have the most up-to-date driver. This can often correct many different problems.
