256-bit color

By Badgirl0711 ·
I had 256-bit color settings, now I only get 16 & 2 bit color. I contacted Compaq on this and what they have told me to do hasn't helped. I have a compaq en series computer hooked up to a compaq fs740 monitor. I bought everything seperate.A errorcomes monitor depth isn't high enough.
I can't find the c.d that might have came with the monitor, if it came with one.

256-bit color

by Joseph Moore In reply to 256-bit color

Video card drivers. You need to get the proper video card driver, install it, then you will get more colours. You are stuck in VGA mode.
So, go to this Compaq web page:
Select your processor and the OS you are running, click the Locate Software button.
On the next page, click on Display to jump down to the video drivers. Download the appropriate driver for the video card your system has in it.
Install the driver, reboot, and you should have colour.

hope this helps
