error message tells me my colour depth is not correct is in 16 colours and needs to be 256, but in my display settings it will not let me change and i hav not got the windows ME cd to reintall the graphics driver. How do i fix this
im only familiar with xp but,try right clicking my computer, click properties, and then click the device Manager tab.click on you display adapter properties,it should say what brand it is here even if the drivers are not installed.
The Sack makes a good point.what is it your trying to display?
normally its 16 or 32 bit colour(millions of colours)some older programs can only use 256 colours so the setting need to be reduced.if the drivers are not installed,you should still be able to display 256 colours but not 16 or 32 bit.hope that makes sense.
