graphics card 16 colours after defrag

hi, i have a satellite pro 4200 toshiba laptop. it got infected and then it got defragged and windows reinstalled(2000 professional).
before it had at least 256 colours but since the defrag i have only 16 colours available and have no idea in how to see if my graphic card is still available to me or it has been lost or what.

any advice would be welcome

you need to reinstall your graphics card driver

Start - run -Msconfig
on first page make sure Diagnostic mode is unticked ;)

ok tried to install it, but it wouldnt do it. but there is vga there, i tried with the windows disk but still cant find it. i have tried to look at display adapters but it doesnt give m much info.

any short or short way in which to sort it?

have you tried right clicking it in device manager and selecting update drivers or indeed the website for your card?
