Hi, I used to have 32-bit color on my computer until something got messed up and we had to get the computer fixed. When it came back it didnt have 32 bit color any longer. The repair guy said to download the driver for it (which I dont know how to get)

Can somebody tell me how to get the drivers for 32 bit color (some of my programs require it)

My OS is Windows XP

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

Yeah I cannot install the Everest thing because during installation it pops up with file corruption notices...I tried clicking ignore but it seems like the entire file is corrupt.

I need to go somewhere for a little bit but I will be back in a little while. Please keep this thread open because I am still trying to get everest. Everest seems to be coming in as a corrupt file from all of the download sources. I have yet to try Major Geeks but I will get to that in a little bit.

Is the IP address associated with the affected computer. If that helps at all. Do you have any rhyme or reason why the download is coming in to my computer as corrupted?

The IP address isn't a concern

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

Try Everest, post the make and model of the display adapter

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Euhm.... show the desktop -> rightclick on the desktop -> properties -> Settings.

Under the image of the monitor, you can read it's name. That's even more simple than downloading something, y'know.
