For Information I am running windows 98...:@)
My colour still looks like an oil painting. Tried changing settings to 268 16Bit hi colour...nothing works. I have been advised to look at graphics card, but although can get into device drivers I can't work out what is the graphics card. I have looked at all Device drivers and there are no ! marks. I'm sure it's a really simple thing, but as soon as I open anything but a word document the PC goes mental. Sorry for drivelling folks but it is really hacking me off....Cheers...:@)

the graphics card in device manager is normally listed under Display adapters, try removing the graphics from within Device manager (right click & remove) and let windows reinstall it

Right click on desktop, choose properties, then settings, then advanced. Graphics card will be under the "Adaptor tab", click on that, then on update driver. point it to where your driver is, CD, or floppy, then follow on-screen instructions. j.

Graphics card should be in 'Display Adapters'.

Removing your display drivers. Can do this via Device Manager/Display Adapters - highlight the Display Adapter and click on remove.

Reboot your machine and see if Windows picks it up again - if not, reinstall your drivers.

This may help.
