I have had this problem before on a laptop but that was ages ago. Now it is affecting my desktop.

I am displaying the right monitor in the Device Manager, but the graphics display will only display the standard VGA setup and I only get 16 colors, not the 256 nor small fonts either.

I tried to install the standard XGA, but it can't find the driver for that. I am not sure though if a XGA driver will give me 256 colors.

any suggestions?

You need to identify your Display Adapter and get the driver for that. What is your operating system?

You can download and run Belarc Advisor. That will do an inventory on your computer. Look under Display Adapter for the info. If you need some help finding a driver just post back with that info.
