I saw the thread on this on the Win95 forum, but it isn't much help for me. I reinstalled Win98, but the file vnetbios.vxd turned up missing, so when I start the computer up, it generates the black-screen error message. Once I hit "anykey ", the system starts, but I cannot adjust my video settings beyond 16 colors and 640x480. The machine has an ATI RAGE video card in it, and I believe it installed correctly, but cannot be sure as I cannot adjust my settings. I downloaded it on my XP machine, as it's the only one connected to the internet at the moment. I was able to put the file on a 3.5 floppy, but when I put the disk in the A: drive, it stops functioning, so I even wasted an entire cdrom by burning the stupid little 39 kb file onto it, thinking I could use that method, but when I load the disk in the 98 machine, it doesn't see the file on the disk. I lost my train of thought here, so I'll simply ask if anyone has any ideas or advice. Can the file be found on the Win98 disk? Or is it somewhere in the Windows file? Any help would be VERY appreciated. Thanks folks. Rob.
