Compaq V700 - low res/16 colour problem

  Fids 13:56 23 Jan 2005

Have recently installed Windows 98SE on a Compaq PC which was previously running Windows 2000. The Compaq V700 monitor only only displays 16 colours and a low 480 res (unchangeable). I am about to install a later driver (SP20493.exe via HP) but was wondering if anyone has any ideas.

Searching on the internet I have seen other such problems which have not been resolved by installing the latest driver.

Assuming the latest driver does not fix the problem has anyone else come across this and found a fix for it? It';s not my PC and I only get to 'visit it' once a week so I'm trying to cover every angle here!!

Many thanks,

Ian Fidler

Other than trying different graphics drivers, I am not sure what can be suggested.

Do you know the graphics card? Getting drivers from the manufacturer may also help.
