I have a Riva TNT 2 32 mb video card installed on another computer and I was doing some updates on XP and the display got screwed up and set on like 8 bit color so i uninstalled the driver and went back to what it was before. But now for some reason it is stuck in 640 x 480 x 32 and when i go to adjust the resolution it automatically reverts back and i cannot seem to figure out how to fix it

any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello welcome to GeeksToGo, We will be happy to help you.
Go to
Start>>Right Click on My Computer>>Properties>>Hardware>>Device Manager
Any in ther have a yellow exclamation mark next to it?

If that shows nothng then close that window down
Now Go to
Start>>Control Panel>> Display>>Settings Tab>>Click On adavnced button>>Click on Adaptor
Does it show your video card there?

We will need some more information
If this is a name brand system:
Operating System
Age of the computer
Memory Total
Hard Drive Size, How much free space

If this is custom then We will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started

All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.
