Same story second verse......my computer only has 16 colors. I have followed suggestions from Microsoft and installed other drivers but nothing. I really am getting good at installing and uninstalling these things.

Processor - Pentium 4
Motherboard - Intel D845EPT
Version - AAA83390-307
Chipset - 845

OS - Windows 98 SE (I know it is like trying to fly a jet airplane on regular gasoline :tazz: but the computer was a gift from friend due to upgrading of his business. I am playing around with it just to try and learn a little bit. Any help would be appreciated and I am sure glad my limited skills led me to this site.

Thanks in advance.

Probably the easiest way to get the correct driver in a case like this, is to open the case, look at the device or card and get the mfrs. name and part number and go to the mfrs. website. Most mfrs. have at least a redirect page that goes www.companyname.com, but you can also use Google!!!

In fact, since you're running an older OS on a newer machine this is just about the only way to find it.
