    Exclamation Win98 - No Video card

    Is there a way to trick Win98 into not having a Video card ?

    My mother board supports it, but when booting into 98 without the video card plugged in it beeps and waits until I press Enter.

    Any help would be great....

    what do you mean "my motherboard support it" ??
    As far as i know, the graphic beeping sound is not from windows or os. it is from bios start up recoginition.

    Yes,it is possible to use Win98 without video card.The beep that you hear when entering Win98 without video card warning you that your video card is not connected.You can disable this message,but you have to do some things:
    First,install some program that allows you to remotely control another PC,like PC-Anywhere from Symantec.If you search the web you can find its trial version.That way you can control your MP3 player from another PC,and when you entering Windows,you should see this type of message:"Warning!Windows can`t detect your video adapter.Press Ok to continue",and near this you will see an option that says "Don`t show me this warning in future".Just disable the warning,and you won`t hear the beep again.

    Cool

    Cheers Dima,

    Other reply's (yes my bios has been set to ignore all error's, it was just windows halting.)

    I have PC anywhere, but don't feelike adding the network stuff and PC anywhere to my nice clean install, which boots in 20sec from power up. not bad for a Cyrix 150...

    Do you remember what the form looks like.. so I can just press tab and enter to disable it. (or where every keys).

    Thanx's

    No,I don't remeber how it looks like.But once you disable the warning message,windows won't bother you anymore,so you can uninstall PC-Anywhere from your player.You probably asking how I will remove it without seeing what I am removing,and the solution is to disconnect your HD from player,connect it to your home PC as slave and then just delete it,and reconnect it to your player.
    By the way,you don't need to add a network card,PC-Anywhere can operate from parallel ports.

    Cheers,

    I used PC Anywhere to get rid of the message, hooked up a LAN card and controlled it, but the display was **** house and couldn't read anything. but got through it.

    NOTE for other users:
    You press OK to past the fist message. then it goes through the hardware installation wizard. just click next, next, next etc. and make sure you have you cabs/cd ready to go from the same spot as you installed.You can get through it this way...

    After intalling LAN and PC Anywhere the uninstalling, boot time has increaded by 8-10 seconds...

    Hope this helps someone...

    You don't need all that complicated crap. This is what I thought... win98 has a stupid message that warns you you don't have a video card. of course you cant SEE the message so whats the point? argh... well there should be a key combo that you can do blind. Probably tab, then space, will check the box to "don't show this warning". Then just press enter. I'm going to try this on my machine. If this isn't the right key sequence someone correct it.
