Win 98 colour change

  wednesday 13 08:33 15 May 2005

Recently I had problem with my PC running windows 98 and now, since I have had it running again (at first in safe mode and now normally with a diagnosis start up,)it has been running with only 16 colours.

I know how to change it in properties but whenever I turn it up to 250 colours it tells me to restart and after I do, it is still 16 colours.

Is there any other ways to change the colour which actually could work?

You'll probably have to reinstall the video drivers and the monitor driver if Windows hasn't picked it up.

I uninstalled the graphics card and then re-installed it after retarting the PC.

It is now finally back to normal.
