I was given a HP Kayak XA Pentium II., and Dell monitor. It has Windows 98 OS. The monitor showed only black and white so I installed a spare one, Compaq V55, and I got some color. In the display settings it still only gives 2 or 16 colors as options.I realize Pentium II is outdated but shouldn't it be capable of 16-bit or something?Is there somewhere else to change the settings?(When we set it up at first all we got was a screen with the BIOS settings listed)

I'd have to go to my brother's place to see. I'm trying to get him set up for internet. I can follow step-by-step instructions pretty well, but I'm strictly a novice at computers.
