    Does anyone know about the "Graphics Hardware Acceleration"? (system icon/performance tab/graphics button). I can't seem to set it at full. Everytime I do so the system does not boot, all you see is a black screen. I have to bootup into safe mode and move the lever back to the middle position. What does this mean and how can I set it to the full position. I have a Compaq Presario, Windows 98.

    Thanks in advance!

    This setting is to fix errors due to system incompatibility.

    Most often it means that your motherboard cannot keep up with your video card. Sometimes it means that your video card is going bad.

    Is this a new card you have installed?
