I am a recent p.c. user.My nephew sorted my p.c. out as the drive would not defragment.He had to delete a lot of useless programmes i did not need.Since he brought it back,the colors that I can only "get" is a choice of only 2 or 16 colors.I used to be able to get 256 colors,my nephew has said I can down load the clors through a program which had been on my computer called.Rage 11c AGP(English)I have been unable to locate this to download it.Anybody out there please help as the graphic colors I now have are pathetic.Many thanks.

Sounds like you nephew didnt install the video card drivers, you will need to install or download some from video card manafacturers site.

click here
click the link above,choose graphics driver,then choose the operating system(windows 98 or Xp,or whatever your system runs),then choose your graphics card model.Download it,then unininstall the graphics card driver that you are using now-(if any)through the control panel.
Then open the new downloaded driver by clicking on it(from the place you downloaded it to),and follow instructions.
