    Hello all! I just re-formatted my system. Win 95/200mhz 64 ram. I have an Iomagic video card and downloaded the drivers, but when I restart, the screen stays blank. I believe it is my monitors refresher rate. My default setting now is standard display adapter vga. Problem is I dont know what kind of monitor this is!!!!!! It was one of those no-names that I got at an office store. It had one page of instructions, and that I can not find. No name on the back of it or anywhere else I see. Is there a site that has generic drivers that I can get more than the basic 16 colors I now do? The drivers on my win95 cd do nothing. Is this even my problem, or am I way off? As usual, thanks for the help! Mike. :)

    go to display properties, settings, advanced, adapter, choose adapter default rather than optimal.

    Are you sure you have the right drivers

    if you bought the monitor in the US then on the back or somewere you should see a FCC ID number. WIth that in hand get to the www.fcc.gov and choose the Search ID link , That should tell you who made your monitor and then look for a driver. If you need to get a generic drive , from Display settings change the monitor to a SVGA or 15" or whatever the screen size is .
