I reformatted a hard drive for a friend and loaded Win 98SEand am unable to get more than 640x480 resolution, with 16 colours (not 16 bit). From the settings tab, the slider will not move from 640/480 and the colour choice is 16 colours or 2, which is B&W. Is there anywhere else to look?
madboy33, Thanks for that, but the puzzle is that I used the same disc on another PC last week and the resolution was OK. Are the drivers that you mentioned not part of the disc and if not where would I download from?
madboy33, Sorry for the delay. There is a yellow ? alongside each of the following; PCI Ethernet Controller Pci Multimedia Audio Device Unknown Device. I'm afraid this means nothing to me and cannot understand why I am having this problem with a disc that has been used several times before. This was a donated surplus school PC, would you think this is a clue to the problem? It's getting late so will look for a reply tomorrow evening if you have any other suggestion. Thanks for the moment.
when i am reading pages on the internet even this page a lot of my letters are green if have only noticed this in the last few nights could anyone please help as the pc is in the last few months of its extended warrenty thanks leo
madboy33, Thanks for the post just received and will download belarc. Also will get in the box Friday and advise further. I downloaded from the forum link, 1st QuickRes Light, which claimes to control display settings from a system tray icon, but have had no success. I appreciate the help you are giving and am sorry it's dragging on, but the gear is in an outbuilding and am unable to leave the house in the evening.
