i have an IBM thinkpad 390E with windows 98 on it. umm i got a bad virus a while back that totally shut it down, so i reformated with xp. after that didnt work, i put 98 back on it, but now it seemsthat my video card is messed, as it only lets me choose between 16 and 2 colours, and i can only have one screen size (640x480) im just wondering if maybe it was the reformmating that goofed it of the virus, and if tehre is any way i can fix it... or do i have to just get a new card?

Sounds like you don't have the appropriate video driver installed. You can find drivers for your laptop here.
