I am running win98SE (fully updated) and often have the problem of retaining my desktop resolution (1600X1200x32) when certain games crash. Upon reboot, windows plays stupid and actually thinks I want a 320X240X16 display, or whatever the last video mode was. I realize I am using a far-outdated OS, but if anyone came up with a fix, or has a script to automatically change to the preferred resolution on startup (1600x1200x32) that I can run through autoexec.bat, I'd be delighted to see it. I just don't have the hardware to run XP yet on this MB, or I'd be running it.
Secondary, on occasion after just letting my computer sit for a few hours unattended, I occasionally get a blank white window with only a "close" radio button, as if something crashed, but I cannot gain any information on it no matter what I do (I suspect a rundll error/explorer crash simultaneously), and it is not a virus (not counting win98SE itself). Any ideas on this? Any reason why any app would crash if left unattended (besides win98SE determining that a crash position is the ideal operating condition)?
Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance
