    Graphics Card

    I am having problems with my graphics card. I reinstalled Win98 on my machine. When irebooted it found the right graphics card as i took the card out before installing to make sure i knew what kind it was. However once it is installed it will not go to more than 16 colors, and i need it on at least 256 to run any programs. My card is a trident 9000c and is in an isa slot. It is an old pc, but i have read on the website that the graphics card will support 256 colors.

    It sounds like you need to select a monitor.

    While you may have the correct card drivers installed, if you don't select the right monitor, you'll be stuck with 16 colors.. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15> Check that out and see if you've got the right one installed.

    I've seen almost everything related to this problem, the troubleshooting steps are as follows:

    1. Ensure that Graphics card is secure in slot.
    2. Ensure that correct display type is selected.
    3. Ensure that correct card type is selected.
    4. Update Display Driver*
    5. Update Card Driver*

    * You may update these drivers by checking <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.driverguide.com/guide/intro.htm>www.driverguide.com</A>. Not only does this site link to the manufacturers sites in most cases, but they also have a download arena of thier own.

    I hope this helps, if you have any problems, please post back here!
