if your graphic card drivers are not installed properly then you will only get a 16 colour display, Try and reinstall your graphic`s card and see if that helps.

I had the same problem a few days ago. It was caused by my new graphics card using the driver from the old card (don't know why) despite a reload of Windows 98 and my forcing it to look for a better driver several times.

In the end my son-in-law used the browse facility to force it to use the correct driver, and it's been okay since then.

Re install your graphic card software. Look in device manage for any highlighted problems.
