hi my 3 year old has just been given a pc runs 95
1gb hd 15mb ram, the problem is she went into it and changed the display resolution setting to the highest setting and every time it's switched on, the monitor displays icons multiplyed and lines
how do i get it back to the right res. thanks

not familiar with 95 but think if you boot into safe mode by tapping F8 at start up you should be able to fix the screen size.

You can also try to boot up in safe mode, either f1,f8,or f9 not sure with win98, then if this is o.k, then try to change the display from here. If this has no effect, then you most likley choice would be to reformat and start again, you can use windows98 for this if you haven't win95, if you load win98 with the least requirements you might just get away with it.

good luck, I hope you get it fixed, My kids donethis to me several years ago, and then I didn't knowa thing about the workings, and cost me thirty quid to have the hard drive reformated and reloaded at a friendly local shop.
