I just restored my Windows 98. I noticed that the screen looked horrible, and when I went to settings I only found 16 and 2 bit (black and white). :thumbsup: I searched the Internet and found nothing helpful. Some one please help me! I want to play my games!

Do you have the driver for you video card? Sounds like you need to install the video driver for your computer.

Maybe, I don't know. I think I did. Is there any other way to get 32 bit?

Well, you could also download the driver from the internet. If you know what type of video card that you have, or the make and model of your computer.

Do you know what adapter you have?? Use Everest Home 1.51 to discover what video adapter you have, and for the matter all of your devices.

I agree with Acklan d/l Everest 1.51 and find out the make and model of your video card. Then do a google search or goto the manufacturer's website and find the driver for it. Install it and then re-boot the computer. You should then be able to set it to a higher colour setting.

It's not uncommon for Everest to provide a link to the driver's web site.

Oh, It wasn't anything you can do without buying anything. All I did was upgrade my software to Windows XP. 32-bit was there after the upgrade.

That's one way of fixing the problem. :thumbsup:

As long as you have enough computer power, this is another reason to make the jump to XP.
