   2) Run Disk Defragmenter (DeFrag.exe) if hard driver is near full.

Trouble Shootings
------------------

1. After installing the driver, Windows 98 doesn't prompt me for restarting
   and the driver still doesn't work after I reboot it by myself.

   You may have installed similar drivers before. Try the following steps
   to install:

   (1) Use right button of mouse to click on "My Computer" icon on desktop.
   (2) Select "Properties" and "System Properties" box appears
   (3) Click on "Device Manager" tab
   (4) You will see a list of devices on your computer.
   (5) If "Display adapters" appears in the list, click it.
       If "Display adapters" doesn't appear, jump to step 9 and continue.

   (6) The name of your card will be listed in the box. Double click it.
   (7) The properties box of your card appears. Select "Driver" tab.
   (8) Click "Update Driver.." and follow the installation steps.

   (9) Click "Other devices" you will see your card is listed.
  (10) Click on the name of card, the properties box appears.
       Select "Driver" tab.
  (11) Click "Change Driver.." and follow the installation steps.

2. After installation and restarting, Windows 98 informs me that display
   setting is still incorrect. What can I do?

   There may be conflict between previous and current display drivers.
   This is caused by not complete removal of previous display driver. Try
   the following steps to remove it:

   (1) Use right button of mouse to click on "My Computer" icon on desktop.
   (2) Select "Properties" and "System Properties" box appears
   (3) Click on "Device Manager" tab
   (4) You will see a list of devices on your computer.
   (5) Open "Display adapters" in the list (double click it).
   (6) You will find two (or more) conflicted adapters listed here.
   (7) Remove all previous adapters by selecting them and press "Remove"
   (8) Close Device Manager and restart Windows 98.
   (9) Now display driver will work correctly.
