    I just formated and reinstalled windows 98se. Before I did this I could
    get 16 bit on the monitor and the d-link network card worked. now I can
    only get 16 colors and a 480X640 screen and I can't get the network
    adapter to take the drivers. I downloaded new drivers for my video card
    but it says windows can't open without direct x. I down loaded direct x
    on another computer and put on a disk but windows can't open it on the
    98 computer. In device manager it says all is good.
    I downloaded new drivers for the network card and when I try to install
    the drivers I get message install failed.
    Any help?

    You would appear to have the wrong drivers.
    Note you may also need the motherboard chipset drivers installed before the
    other drivers work properly.
    Open your case and note what your Motherboard, Video & Network are.
    Then go to and search for the Windows 98 drivers.(free
