    Got this computer that used to have me and someone wiped it and put on win 98. It crashed and could not get past invalid system disk insert disk. No disks were in. They got the me disk from emachine and wanted that back on. Had to format and then install me.
    Worked fine and its a restore cd and nortons ghost came up and installed me. It found devices and a monitor and installed and win me screen comes up fine and then when it starts I have 3 of everything on the desktop and three mouse pointers Its like three of the same pictures one left one middle and one right. Display is set ok. In device manager only yellow mark is pci.
    I tried 2 monitors one a emachine. If I take it back will it work on her monitor If I reinstall it Or are we talking video or drivers. Im stumped thanks for any help

    I wiped it again and I have 98 and installed that and video is fine. Is it because this is a restore cd and its installing from nortons ghost and it want her exact monitor?
    Works fine in 98. I guess I will try to take it to her house wipe it install from restore cd and her monitor
