So I boot her up this morning, just to find Windoze 98SE crashed on loading...it hasn't done this for years...I know immediatly something is wrong! So the Safe Mode crap comes up, I choose Normal Mode and get to Windows to find 16 Colours, 640x480! Ack, so I try to fix that and my vid card drivers magically disapeared from the face of the Earth! Now I was really thinking 'WTF'! So I managed to change the color to normal and it says I have to reboot even though I have it set to apply without rebooting....then my screen goes to hell and gets all flaky and lines all over the damn place! Now I'm getting worried...so I reboot and everything is normal...my drivers are back but after opening a couple IE Windows and Winamp thinking all was fine it hard locked - yes you immediatly say its cuz its Win98SE has crashing problems. Well mine doesn't. My thoughts are I burnt the RAM (PC 133@150) that I just got yesterday. I clocked it back down to normal and it *seems* better now but I can't say for sure until I do a few hours of gaming and I can't do that right now...FYI I didn't startup in Safe Mode I know that for sure...scanning for viruses now.
