    Display Problems

    A friend is running Win 2000 Pro. He has only one selection in Display > Settings - 16-bit color and 800x600 pixels. The pictures on his desktop look fuzzy, not clear and sharp.

    What can be done to give him a choice of 24-bit and 256 colors and a working slider to go from one screen size to another?

    I have no answers to give him but I sure know where to find them, so here I am.

    Thanks guys, I know the answer is just around the corner.

    Thats decided by the size and type of Video Card. He needs to find out what kind of Video Card he has in the Machine and Download the correct Drivers for that Card, because he may be using the Generic Display Drivers. Other wise thats all it's going to allow, unless thats just a small Video Card. But my bet is he needs to use the right Drivers for his Video Card. Other wise you end up with Windows Default Display Adapter. Once he loads the right Drivers and you go to Display settings you will see the other options your looking for.

    I knew I could depend on the genuises on this Lounge. Thank you so much, I will relay your message and have him check for the driver his Videio card is using. I will return post haste with his reply.
