I have read numerous posts on this problems and have done a few things recommended to correct the problems. Display and color were fine a few days ago. Turned PC on and display was in 800 x 600. Corrected it in control panel/display/settings. Now text and screens seem bigger, especially on Internet. Colors displayed on monitor (like blue) are different, not crisp, like they usually are. I can change color to 256, high color (16 bit), and true color (24 bit) in display settings - has no effect on color.

Card in pc is 9FX Reality 334, I have right clicked My Computer and checked device status and it says it is working properly. I have checked out monitor and unplugged and plugged back in cable to video card in PC.

I run Windows 95 on a Pentium II, MMX, 96 MB Ram.
I have ran out of options - any suggestions?

Not my strong suit, if I have one. Have you tried removing it in device manager and rebooting? Windows should pick it back up at start up.

hi tj........the colour scheme your getting......is it kinda like the one you get in safe mode?
try booting into safe mode and see....also check device manager ,make sure the correct card is listed....if so,try uninstalling your graphics card,shut down,take the card out and make sure the dust is cleaned away and then make sure its correctly seated in the slot(maybe try another pci slot).......(thats if its not on-chip graphics,then im steering you in the wrong direction)
re-boot and let windows re-install the card....have the driver disk ready.
come back and let us know what happens.
good luck

In safe mode color scheme is similar but everything is grainy, not clear. I have removed the card in device manager and took card in PC out, cleaned off a little and reseated card in same slot (only one available). Rebooted PC and reinstalled card.

Color problems still the same on blues, grays, and gray/black combinations.
