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
and reboot several times then go to Dell
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.

Hi. Problem with windows 98. My computer went into safe mode, and the only way that I could get it back was to run the WINDOWS 98 disk that I had when it was new. I now find that I am not able to change...

You need to install a video driver for your video card. Do you know what video card is installed? Do you have the original install disks for the video card? For a machine that old, it may be hard to locate a driver.

I usually use Unknown Device Identifier ( to tell what drivers are missing, but I don't know if it works with Windows 98.

I just reinstalled windows 98se but it only has 16 bit color is their a way to get 32 bit color

You need to install the Video driver for your graphics card to get full use of your display card with full feature.
  • There might be a motherboard CD shipped with your PC, it might include driver for your all devices.
  • Just put that CD and install the required drivers.
  • If you don't have any CD like that, then you should go to your manufacturer's site and make download driver for your device for Windows 98.
