I just reinstalled my operating system (Windows XP) on to my Dell Dimension 3000 computer. I am stuck on 16 bit colors and screen resolution 640 by 480. In my new hardware video controller(VGA compatible) is listed and won't be installed by my Dell-color monitor disk. I am completely confused on how to fix this problem.

Do you have any driver disks for your computer?

Do you know what video card is in your computer?

Hope this covers video card From Everest
Graphics Processor Properties:
Video Adapter Intel 82865GV Graphics Controller [A-2]
GPU Code Name Springdale-G (Integrated 8086 / 2572, Rev 02)
GPU Clock 266 MHz
Display:
Video Adapter Intel Extreme Graphics 2
3D Accelerator Intel Extreme Graphics 2
Yes I do have a driver disk that came with my computer-(Dell E173FP Color Monitor User Documentation)- I have been told to use this to install my monitor if needed but the disk does not install the Video Controller(VGA compatible) which is under new hardware. I can't install my monitor through display properties because it is listed as a default monitor and I am unable to change it.

Go to the Device Manage and delete the Display Adapter. Reboot your computer and windows will prompt you to install the video adapter. Either pck it from the list or click Have Disk and use the resource disk. That will be where the drivers are located.
