I have an old PC running Windows 98SE which I use infrequently. Recently the monitor failed so I replaced it with an old GEM monitor and booted up. The machine seemed to boot up and the monitor displayed a message to the effect that the operating system had recognized the monitor and that I needed to access the Display section of Control Panel to adjust the settings. Unfortunately, since the monitor won't display anything until the display settings are adjusted correctly, I can't access Control Panel to make the necessary changes. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
Try booting to the Boot Menu, by pressing F8 as your computer Starts. Select VGA Mode, which if I remember correctly is the 5th choice on the menu. This should allow windows to startup so you can add or change the drivers.
