My best guess is that you were using a resolution on the old monitor that the new monitor cannot support. Try going into safe mode and turning down the screen resolution.

The memory test means that the computer is going through "POST".:

Now after the PC finishes posting hold ctrl (I think thats the correct key for windows 9x). You will then see a boot menu and select safe mode.

1.Video card or internal video ?
2.Old used or new monitor.
Does the previous one work ?
I guess not if your at a Cafe.That could mean many things are wrong.
But
If you connected it properly the video card should instantly recognize it
and use the previous settings.
If its new,take it back.If its used it's not compatible.
A monitor is one of the easiest hardware to install.Just connect it.
Note: This problem does not requre the W98 cd.
So please answer all i asked.
Where are you when it stops booting to Windows ?
It appears you get information about your system.
Are there any error messages ? Use the Pause key and Enter to slow things down during booting.Watch for key press options.
By the way,i just changed monitors,it worked ok.:D

I know it "won't start in windows" but will it in safe mode? Do you even know what safe mode is? The way I see it you have two options; one re-read my post and try what I said, or two take it to your local geek squad.

Now if you want our help please post back telling us if you can get into safe mode. If you can't tell us any error messages you receive. Also if it does work in safe mode try lowering the screen resolution (as mentioned above).

I just noticed the date this was posted.
I doubt if this is being watched by
tmm5899 now,probably isn't accepting email notice.
Time to lock this post i'd think. :roll:
You decide.
But i don't appreciate no replys to the help supplied. :?
