Are you referring to color scheme? If so, you should be able to right-click on an empty space on the computer desktop, choose Properties from the menu that appears. Then, in Windows XP, choose the Settings Tab. You should see a drop down menu on the lower right titled Color quality. In the drop down menu you can choose 16 bit, and should have a selection for 32 bit. Select the 32 bit, click Apply. Then the screen should change to that setting and ask if you want to keep those settings. Select OK and you should be good.

    Not enough memory

    You can't increase the video memory on a games update/upgrade, the video requirements often increase as well. So, what used to work with less video ram won't now.

    You could try decreasing the number of video colors your system displays - for example from 32 bit to 16 bit. You'll see what I'm talking about when you open the properties for your desktop and click on video settings.

    Video driver for Dellm770 with Dell Optiplex110 - running Windows98

    video si dependent on the video card you have. WIn98 is capable of 32 colors, therfore, you need to get a video card that is capable of giving 32 bit color.
    as fa as digiital pic, you need at least 32bit if not 256bit. which win98 will have a hard time to comeup with.

    I think it is time to upgrade.

    32 color

    you can this in display properties on desktop you can set it to 16 or 32 bit. But there may be another problem ie., if you have not installed the display driver software if it is not packed with your windows. install the driver from the driver cd provided when you bought the pc.
