I installed WMe on my laptop last night but for some reason the drivers to the LCD - maybe - aren't being recognised as it won't let me change the resolution or the number of colours from 16.
Which drivers aren't being recognised and how do I solve the problem?

Thanx :)

Make & Model No. of your Laptop please
Sounds like you have altered setting for VGA or the Me drivers put in wrong driver.

It is the drivers for the graphics card / on board graphics that are wrong. You currently have the generic windows drivers installed and not the specific ones for the card.

How do I install the correct ones for the card and how can I find out what my graphics card is?

Post full deatils of your machine and we can probably work it out from there

What do you need to know?

OS - Windows ME
CPU Type - Pentium 3 - Intel SpeedStep Technology
CPU Speed - 700 MHz
Installed Memory - 256MB

Is there anything else you need to know?

I forgot to mention there is a similar problem with sound!

this will give access to graphics and enable update download, device manager for sound

What is the make and model of the laptop

It's an IBM Thinkpad. I think the sound problem has been sorted.

There's a problem that it is not connected to the Internet (I am on a LAN) and so any downloads would have to take place on my desktop. When I right click on the desktop and try to change resolution or colour settings they don't change.

Any further suggestions?
