    The proper procedure for installing a new card is:

    - remove old card drivers

    - shut off pc and replace the card

    - boot pc and install new drivers



    You haven't clarified you've installed new drivers and that may simply resolve the problem at this point. 95, 98, and ME will hang on to your old drivers so you can reboot into Safe Mode, access the "Control Panel" and then "Hardware Manager" and open the video display category and right-click and remove all your old video drivers. Then reboot to your new drivers.

First uninstall all the graphics drivers you have installed. Restart the computer and install the current graphics driver if required.

Go to display properties --- settings---- color and select the desired option and click "advanced"

on the next screen under "general" ---- "compatibility" select the 2nd option " apply new display settings without restarting"

Your problem may be solved.

Monitor result change 16 colors


One of your applications are changing your color scheme to 16-bit because it isn't compatible with your OS or graphics card. Try reinstalling your drivers, then disabling programs one by one when the problem occurs. For example, games that used to run on windows XP or older tended to change the color scheme and resize the monitor to 480p.

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...


The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/f/open-device-manager-windows-7.htm
and reboot several times then go to Dell
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

Changing my colour on desktop


You'll have to run the game in compatibility mode, with the color depth set to 256 colors.

You do this by right clicking on the executable of your game. click on Properties. Compatibility tab. Click the check to run compatibilty w/ Window 98, and set the color depth to 256 Color. That should work! Happy gaming.

WINDOWS 98 EXTEND MY WINDOWS DESKTOP


You need to download and install the necessary video drivers for your computer's graphics card chipset.

If your computer has a PCI or AGP graphics card, you can power off your computer and then unplug it, open the computer case, and then check the graphics card to see either its make and model or simply write down the info about its chipset. The main graphics chip on the card, for example, might say SIS 6326. You would then go to the SIS web site and download the Win98 drivers for this graphics chipset.

If the graphics is built into the motherboard, then you can look on the motherboard for the graphics chipset model, or consult the motherboard manual or search online to see what graphics chipset the motherboard uses. Video drivers for motherboard chipsets can be downloaded either from the motherboard manufacturer's web site or from the chipset manufacturer's web site.

Once you have installed the appropriate video chipset drivers, the installation utility should ask you to reboot the computer. After you have rebooted, right-click on the desktop and then go to the Advanced settings. You should now be able to increase the color depth and screen resolution.
