at the ram count page when i first startup the display on my added hardware, a compac V75 17' monitor, flashes in and out making the info hard to read.Question: will this do any damage to monitor, how can i get this back to normal? Please.I have downloaded the lastest drivers for win98SE which i run on my celeron400mhz machine which has an SiS 6326-8meg tv out video card, this is set at 75htz refresh,1024*768screen size, if i go to 85htz the monitor blinks off in general use after 10 minutes then flicks back on. any help would be apprieciated thanks in advance Dave.My email address will be up tomorrow,hopefully, as i am shifting house, and changing ISP's

Make sure all connections are secure. If that makes no difference it may be a shortage of power at startup when more power is being used. Does the monitor power lead plug into the computer or you could try running an extension from a totaly different socket, preferably from a different room.
