Sounds like you either need to update the video driver, or allocate more memory to the video card.

Early on-board video systems used low end graphics chips and were often limited to 2 or 4 MB of video RAM.
If you do not have at least 8MB of video RAM, your resolution and color depth will be limited.
Check BIOS settings, and see how much RAM you can dedicate to the video.

Then, verify the specific graphics processor, and download the latest driver from the chip manufacture.
