My computer problem: everything on the display seems enlarged to the extent that a program will not "fit" on the screen. Parts of program don't appear on the screen. This all started after I re-installed Win 98 because of registry corruption.
I tried to solve the display problem by adjusting the display setting (640 x 480) but the slider bar won't slide. I tried to update my Nvidia video card driver to adjust display setting but in the download got this message: "Setup unable to locate any Nvidia graphics chips on this system. Installation will be terminated." My equipment list shows a Nvidia video card.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Which video card does it show

Reboot the machine is safe mode by restarting the machine, just after the memory count and before the windows loading message start tapping the F8 key, choose safe mode from the menu.
Try installing the drivers now.

If that doesn't work download the zipped version of the drivers from www.reactorcritical.com unzip them to a folder, use the change drivers function in display properties, have disk, browse to where the drivers are unzipped, select the .inf file, hit okay
