    I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows 98. Now my 3D screensavers won't work. The entire system locks up when you try to select one.

    Welcome aboard, I see this is your first posting. My folks are from the West Point area, where are you?

    I suspect your problem is caused by Windows selecting the wrong video driver. Right click My Computer, select Properties, Device Manager, Display Adapter, Driver tab, and Update option. Try the Automatic option first if that does not work repeat the process and manually select your video. You may need to download a new copy of the driver from the Manufacture's web site. Good luck.
