You need to update your video driver. 16 bit is 98's default driver. Go to control panel, select add new hardware, click "show me a list of drivers". select "display". It will bring up a list of dispay drivers. You may at this point experiment with different drivers till you find the one that works on your pc. You want 256 colors or better. I used cirrus logic 5464 on my 98se. After selecting driver, follow instructions on installing. When you find one that works, set it to 32 bit high color. Like I said, you may have to experiment with the drivers till you find one that works. NOTE: if you happen to download one that shuts your screen down, just reboot in safe mode and remove driver and start over with a different driver. Hope this helps.

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.

Thanks

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.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and

    Check to make sure you are still running in 32 bit color. If you are running in 16 bit Aero will not work. If that is not the problem, look for a program or hardware you installed just prior to this happening. Some programs will cause Aero to not function.

    16 Bit Vs 32 Bit Systems


    You can't convert the program on the disk from 16 bit to 32 bit. However the 32 bit versions of Windows are supposed to include legacy support for 16 bit applications. What version of WIndows are you running? What's the exact errormessage you're getting?

    However, I would recommend that you use a virtualization product called DOSBox. DOSBox is free software that runs older 16 bit applications on Windows (And other operating systems such as Linux) very well:
