not sure about windows 98 but in xp you can right click the game shortcut etc,choose properties/

and tick "run in 256 colours" maybe?

right click on desk top, select properties,
settings, adjust colours to 256 and restart PC.

then reverse procedure when game is finnished

I have tried the steps you have given me and I still have the same problem. Thought it maybe a refresh rate problem as when i put game in full screen it turns monitor into a blaack screen but i still hear game sound. Really Weird.
