Running win98 with a compaqv70 monitor. I installed a dos
version of battle chess, wasnt running right so I played
with some options, it wanted to be reboot so I did.
After rebot the background color is an ibm blue.Even
during ram count.Changed vid cards, no luck. Ghosted to an
earlier image before the battle chess and same blue screen.
Can't figure out whats wrong.

Hiya and Welcome

When you say IBM blue, what is that? I assume you're saying that when it starts to boot up, instead of it being a black screen with white writing on, its this blue screen with the writing on. Am I right so far?

have you tried changing monitors to see if that solves the problem? Have you changed any of the settings on the monitor by mistake?

if its not the monitor, we could restore your system. reboot to DOS and at the prompt type the following. There is a space before the /

scanreg /restore

and pick a date prior to when this happened. Don't pick the oldest date.

But try the replacing of someone elses monitor first. It may have just started to die on you.


btw, which version of BattleChess is it?

Regards

eddie
