Display problems

  harry the pea 14:31 12 Apr 2004

My neighbour's pc's display keeps resetting itself to 16 colours and something like 400x500 resolution.
It does this even with a different monitor (the old one looks like its on the way out).
He's running win 98 on a p2
His adapter is a s3 savage4 v8 10.25.w98
Any ideas
Many thanks

It sounds like the wrong monitor is selected,This is how to try a different setting, Right click on the Desktop\Properties\Settings\Monitor\Change\Next\Display a list of all the drivers \Show all hardware\Standard monitor types choose a Super VGA 1024x768. then try adjusting after you have clicked on the apply for new monitor
