Just as I was starting to phase out this machine the display appears to have started playing up. A couple of weeks ago the screen went blank, I assumed it was a faulty screen and plugged in another one. I have since attached a dell lcd monitor from another computer and installed the driver from the CD and it worked ok for a couple of days, before the graphics started going streaky. Now when I boot up it goes through the normal process then displays a message "HIMEM.sys has detected unreliable XMS memory at address 0223BA6A. XMS Driver not installed." The Windows 98 screen displays and then the screen goes blank. I am trying to phase this machine out, but it seems to have got in first. Where do XMS drivers come from? Should I reinstall windows 98.
