16 bit color

  dds115 05:52 17 Oct 2005

I can't get my computer off of 16 bit color, it's either that or black and white. I formated my drive today and reinstaled all the drivers and such, but the current one for my monitor doesn't seem to change anything. Does anyone have any advice? I'm running Win 98 on a IMB Thinkpad 600x.The resolution is stuck on 640x480, I can't change that either. Thanks alot!

Have you been into Display settings in Control Panel and tried to change them. It does not change automatic

Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) - This is the simplest display adapter - it will only let you have 16 colours (NOT 16-bit clour, note) and 640x480. You need to get the correct graphics driver loaded.

click here for all the drivers - I think the video driver is the one you need.

click here Specific to your machine - all the drivers. Start off with the Monitor. Read carefully the installation instructions for your Operating System. They vary. Post back if you`re not sure - I shall be out this afternoon but DieSse can help you.
