OK- i just had a huge problem with a computer i was given with my brother that i was able to fix thanks to those of you on this site, now- my new question- and possibly a very STUPID question is:

On my settings i ONLY have

16 Colors
2 Colors

How the heck do i get 16 Bit, and 256 like i have on my other computers? do i have to install a new card- or a software... or what? and if so- how much does something like that cost for an older compaq?


Please help me solve my rather- dumb question


I want to use my picture software and stuff on this desktop computer- but i really want everything to look REAL, and with 16 BIT i know it does- while with just 16, it all looks rather cruddy

Thanks

You need to figure out the Make and Model of the computer. Then go to HP/compaq's website and they will have the correct Video Driver for you to download. I won't be able to tell by a picture.
