Win 98 - 16 colours

  wednesday 13 08:36 15 May 05

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 could try uninstalling, and then reinstalling, your graphics card drivers.

Do as Joe R suggests, this sort of problem is almost certain to be related to graphics card drivers.

How do you uninstall it?

wednesday 13,

go to control panel-system-device manager, and it should be under display.

Download and install click here

It will tell you what your graphics card is.

Then go to the manufacturer site and get the latest drivers.

I uninstalled the graphics card, reset the PC and then re-installed the card.
