When booting up the computer on Win 98, a red box appears with the message, "No Sync". For several times it will lock up requiring the computer be shut off, then after several tries it will continue with the bootup process....

Welcome to TSG

I don't know what the cause is but next time it happens when you have to reboot ............go to ........ Start/Help/ASD follow what it tells you for "automatic skip drivers"...it will diagnose & repair the problem........ matter of fact you should read it now so you are familiar with it.

Hope that helps!

The message is probably referring to the monitor. Check the cable to see if it is firmly seated. You may also need to reseat the video card itself.

When you do get it booted, check Display Properties or the Device Manager to see if your Monitor is correctly recognized as to make and model. In Display properties>adapter, you may need to change the refresh setting from adapter default to optimal or visa versa.
