scrambled monitor colors on boot up

  patles 19:09 31 Jan 2005

When initially booting up in morning everything seems okay until getting to windows color logo when the colors and picture appear totally scrambled up, then computer shuts off. After rebooting in safe mode several times & having to reset display parameters back to normal, everything is okay. Has happened twice in past 6 weeks. Running W98SE. Any help appreciated.

Make sure Graphics Card securely seated and latest drivers installed. Might be worth going to Device Manager and remove - then reboot and let it redetect. If this doesn't work, then start looking at a memory problem. Any other symptoms??

No, no other symptoms. Everything seems to work fine otherwise. Just those 2 times over a 6 week period. Thanks, I'll try your suggestions--
