I've had this AcerView 54e SGVA 15" monitor for about 8 years. It came with my Win95 computer and worked fine. Recently, I used it temporarily on a Dell WinXP machine; worked fine. I "borrowed" it for a Win98SE machine and couldn't get it to work right. On bootup, it displays the DOS screens, and then the Windows start screen, but then I get nothing but a screen full of wavy horizontal lines. I tried it on another Win98 computer, with the same mobo, and got the same results. So I put it back on the Win95 machine, and it works fine. What gives? And is there something I can do to make it work with the Win98 machines?

Sounds like the 98 machine has other problems such as video card issues.

It sounds like the resolution or refresh rate is too high for the monitor to handle. You can try lowering the settings in Safe Mode or using a monitor that does work on the computer. The refresh rate is under the Advanced settings of Display Settings and you should try lowering it to 60Hz.
