I have just been given a compaq p111 733 mhz 128 megs ram and 8 gigs of hdd and on board video adapter. It was reformated and ready for a new os so i put Win ME on it and every thing is fine but the display is only 16 colours. The monitor is capable of svga and is correctly identified in the Hardware lsit under System in Control panel. However the Adapter in the same list is the vga standard one. I have updated the Win ME from the update site and the display has upto date drivers but the adapter remains vga. Am I missing something? How can I change the setting so I can have a full range of colours on the display. Thank you for your help. Pavel
If you can't update the video driver on your motherboard (and it would be worth identifying the graphics processor that you've got on board and going to that web site) then seriously consider an add-on video card that you can update the graphics drivers for. No doubt this is where your problem lies.
