Greetings Joel - You need to install the XP video drivers for your particular PC. You didn't give your machine model so I can't tell you which one to download.

Go to the Emachines support website HEREselect the desktop option, then find your machine model and then download and install the XP video driver.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya

Come back with your machine model number if your still having problems setting up the video drivers,

This problem has occurred because only the generic video driver (VGA) was installed.
You may find other device drivers was not installed.
Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and if you see any yellow ? against any devices then these device drivers were not installed.
If you computer came with a CD that contains the device drivers then use this disc to install the missing device drivers.
If you do not have this CD then you can download the device drivers from the computer manufacturer's WEB site.
If you still have problems then use these WEB sites to automatically detect and download the device drivers for your model computer.

The screen resolution and bit color is controlled by the video driver NOT by a driver for the monitor.
Install the correct video driver for your video card and you will be able to increase the screen resolution to over 1024 X 768 and bit color to at least 32 bits.

I would like to know if Adobe PageMaker is usable with Windows 7.


PM6.5 is very old in software years. Read here http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/328/328682.html about what Adobe says.

Realistically, you should either install PM6.5 on a Win2K PC or move to InDesign.

You can create a virtual WinXP with Win7 using Virtual PC, but for PM6.5 it's unproven and an extemely lengthy work around.

I think you can upgrade to a newer more compatable version ......cut and paste this to go to the upgrade page for more info http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=Adobe%20PageMaker&v=Adobe&uid=7&l=en&pf=3&pi=1&os=64-bit

Here is the windows system requirements:
Windows
  • Intel® Pentium® processor
  • Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 with Service Pack 6, Windows® 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2, Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
  • 32MB of available RAM (48MB or more recommended)
  • 175MB of available hard-disk space for installation (200MB or more recommended)
  • Video card with 800x600 resolution and 8-bit/256 colors (24-bit, high-resolution display recommended)
  • CD-ROM drive
  • For Adobe® PostScript® printers: Adobe PostScript Level 2 or later

Uninstall any toolbars you have recently installed and see.

Uninstall any program you have installed that claims to speed up your browsers/internet. If you do have such a program, check its options or settings for a clue.

When I installed Windows XP service pack 2 the system resolution is not automatically updated. It is showing as 4 bit only.


Hello,

its showing 4-bit because you did not install the VGA drivers of your computer.

Go to the homepage of the manufacturer of your computer, go to the software & Download section, select your computer's model and a list of appropriate drivers for your computer will come up.

Amongst the list, you will see a VGA drivers there. Download it and and install it on your computer.

Once this is done, your resolution will increase to 16 bit, 24 bit, and 32 bit. This is very certain the moment the VGA is installed on your computer.

Thanks for using fixya....
