    When your computer is at it's first boot screen, normally the video card manufacture and model is displayed.

    You can probably find a Windows 98 driver from the video card manufacture sight that will work for you.

    Also, try setting the video card adapter to SuperVGA or some other Generic mode.

    On that model Acer only supports Windows XP.

    Why are you installing Windows 98SE?

    Most likely several device drivers need to be installed.

    What is the model of you Acer? I will try to direct you to the needed files.

When your system starts up, can't you press F2 or F12 and start a Recovery Installation?

Max HDD size supported by BIOS in TravelMate 508DX


Windows 98 has a max of 64GB and windows 98SE 137GB. (That one came with Win98, right?). A decent 20GB should do if you're using still windows 98. Your BIOS should have a list of drives to choose from but it should be alot more than the 4.8GB drive that comes with the laptop.

Full factory reset


If the PC came with a recovery disk, just simply start the computer with it in the disk drive and it will have the option to "start from scratch" or the like. It will take everything back to the way it was when you first bought it.

Now, some laptops do not come with recovery disks. In this case, you'll need a windows disk with the CD-key for that version. Start the computer with that disk in the drive and just follow the prompts. It will give you the option to upgrade or fix windows, or to install windows. Choose to install windows and format the C:\ drive when it asks you if you'd like to format. It will then erase everything on the hard disk by formatting and continue to install a fresh copy of windows.

Be forwarned.. Windows installs are like watching grass grow; be prepared to have at least an hour of time to do the job. If there's any specific questions you have about it, or even a worry or the like; please feel free to ask. :)
