do you mean 16 or 16 bit?

some old programs require 256 colours to run properly.

are your graphics card drivers installed?

Think you need to update the graffix drivers for your card.

Hope this works on ME...
On a clear bit of your desktop right click and select propoerties from the menu that appears, or choose Display from control panel.

Select the Settings tab and Advanced
On Monitor select your refresh rate (try around 75 to start, too high a refresh could damage your monitor if it does not support it, too low does your head in)
If it works accept it and then on the settings tab set up screen area of 1024 and colour depth desired.

The options are constrained by your video card not he monitor, so if options aren't available its the video cards shortfall.

If the monitor is new to you see if there is a degauss button and have a play with the settings for best performance.

download aida32(any version) click here

install it and run.

click "computer/summary"

scroll down on the right page and look at "display/video adapter" for info on make and model.if its onboard graphics then it may be listed under "motherboard/chipset"

hover your cursor over the highlighted name and you should get a link to driver updates.

if not post the info here and will have a look for you.

Wot Windoze are u running? You need to look in device manager. Try running windoze update. It may have new graphic drivers for you.
