I got my computer back from having it professionally wiped to get rid of all the critters my ex-roommate infested it with, and am currently in the process of resurrecting it. I'm having a problem: In the Control Panel, under Display Properties\Settings, I am unable to change the screen area(it's stuck on 640 X 480 pixels), and I only have choices of 2-color or 16-color. As far as I can tell, I have properly loaded all of my device drivers, and besides, it all worked before with the same hardware and software. I even have a legitimate copy of Shutters 98se.
I tried even paying TinyFlaccid on line for tech support, but their website runs in circles and dead ends. After wirting them a detailed e-mail and giving them my credit card number, upon clicking on submit, I got the classic "This Page Cannot be Displayed" screen, even after retrying ~10 times(yes, I'm now living in fear that I'll be charged for ~10 tech sessions).
I've now spent ~12 hours total trying to get my computer back online. It will get on line, but the graphics are so blown up it's very difficult to navigate, and the color resolution is horrible.
Any helpful suggestions will be nmost appreciated. Any smarmy suggestions will be duly laughed at.
Oh yes, I've tried to reconfigure the video device driver about 1,024 times, and I have AGP. However the system does not seem to want to find it. It sticks with the default Tiny Flaccid driver.
