Dont you mean you can see 16bit and 32bit?

256 colours is only available as i remember through either safe mode or when you dont have the video card drivers

I dont have the internet on the computer. so how can I update/install video drivers?

can I put them on a cd from my xp computer and install them?

Yes - as with any download.

Don't get confused with 16 colours and 16bit colour (which is 65536 colours)

"Drivers Guide" click here

If you have a branded PC then try the manufacturers' website.
