i have recently upgraded my old windows 98
to windows xp prof. However , the color is
only 4 bit(16 colors) and has no other options.
Also , the resolution is fixed and i can't change it.
My previous windows 98 had 32 bit color.
What can i do to fix this problem? I have an integrated
motherboard video adapter called Vgasave.its enabled , but still
only 16 colors come.Please advise.

Hi Ali17 :)

Lets see if we can get some system information.

Download and install PC Wizard 2010

Run the program and it will analyze your computer and then display the results.
In the upper left hand corner click on the floppy icon.
You will get a save as screen.
Change the range bullet "only this selection" to be "selected category".
Make sure that text is selected for format.
Click on ok and you will be given a spot to save it to.

Attach it to your response.

Then Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation ! marks or Red X's
In your next reply please include those results

Then we can work on any missing drivers.
