Hi,
I have Windows 98 Second Edition on my PC.

I had to change my screen resolution and in trying out the various options I set it to the maximum resolution.

After I had restarted the PC ,as I was asked to do, the monitor started displaying the message "Sync. Out of Range" which my monitor manual tells me means that the input signal it's getting is beyond the range of resolution it supports and I should adjust the resolution.

The problem is that I can't get to the Windows 98 desktop to adjust the resolution when I reboot and I get the afore-mentioned message in its place. However I can boot to Mandrake Linux also installed on my PC.

How else can I adjust my Windows 98 screen resolution?

Thanks.

Try it in safe mode.....or boot to a command prompt, and type scanreg /restore and press enter...choose a date prior to the change, but don't go too far back.

AcaCandy,
Thank you very much :)

My prob is entirely solved.

I may add that it couldn't be done in the Safe-mode as you can't access your display properties and change them in the safe mode.
Though scanreg totally solved the problem.

Thanks.
