and try the driver wizard method i mentioned
- just check the windows update to connect to the interrnet as you don't have the 98 cd handy or the drivers on a floppy

what is your grahic card?

[edit]
just so the basics are covered:
when you tried to adjust your settings, did you click on 'apply' before 'ok'
- if so, did it give you the 'apply without booting' or 'you must reboot' message?

well if you don't have the 98 cd when it ask for it, then some file that's need to intall your graphic card will not be able to install on your system. try to get the 98 cd or you can look into your hard drive, search for some thing cabs.
