I am now using Windows ME, I just recently had my computer restored, and it now only has 16 Color Display, how can I get 256 Color Display back, that is what I was using before.
Thanks

You probably need to install the video adapter drivers

You should find these on the motherboard CD if you have onboard or on a CD if you have independent graphics

Download Everest Home here

Run it then click + next to computer then summary, look on right for display / video adapter, post the make and model or look at the manufacturers site for drivers

I dont have any type of cd, but I am going to download this Everest Home thing and try it out. How do I also install the Video Adapters?

Can you make a text report of summary, remove your personal deatils then post the rest in

Standard could be linked to the name of the motherboard
