A:256 Colors Not In Display Settings

Sounds like you need to reinstall drivers for Video card. Did you try booting with command prompt only and typing
"scanreg /restore" without quotation marks?
Go back to a date when you did not have problem.

I have a 433mz Celeron with 128mb RAM running Win98SE. I cannot get the display settings to give me anything better than 16 colors (the other option is 2 colors!!) and a 640x480 screen size. I ran a Belarc and have a Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) and a Sylvania F96 monitor. I've downloaded the latest drivers for each -- the graphics adapter is from Microsoft from 4-23-99 and the monitor driver is from Sylvania from 1-14-02.

I've also tried removing the display adapter and monitor and reinstalling them completely.

Help!?!
 

A:[SOLVED] Display Settings Stuck at 16

the standard pci graphics adapter only allows 16 colors.

we need to get your video drivers reinstalled.

what make and model video card do you have?

if you have onboard video, we will need either the make/model of your computer or the model number from your motherboard to find the correct video drivers for you.

if you have an actual video card, pull it out and look at it and tell us the make./model and we will find the drivers for you.

A downloaded screen saver was installed on this computer and then uninstalled and now the display is horrendous. It is stuck on 16 colors and 640x480. Kinda like it is in safe mode but it is not. I don't know how to get the driver back or where it even is. Can this be fixed without the 2000 CD because I can't find that either!?! Any help would be appreciated.

Hello! I found this forum and really hope someone might be able to help me!

I have an old Packard Bell iMedia PC running Windows XP Media Centre edition. About a year ago I started having display problems, the monitor would go black suddenly and then switch back on. This started happening more and more frequently until I was forced to login in safemode, grab all my vital files, and then reinstall windows. This didn't help. After reinstalling the computer developed a new problem, it would start up with the display set to 4bit at 640 resolution and nothing I could do would change that. At this point a friend kindly gave me his old (legal) copy of WIndows XP Professional SP3 as he was migrating to Windows 7 and I used that to repartition my hard drive and reinstall windows. After the install I found my computer worked perfectly again (registration completed successfully), until I restarted it - it got stuck at absolute minimum resolution again.

I have since replaced the harddrive with a Seagate 500gb, once again it worked perfectly until I restarted it where it got stuck at minimum again. I went into the display settings menu and used the troubleshooter, it told me to open the advanced menu and click on monitor tab, but I couldn't access Preferences.

Can anyone help? My computer looks like it's stuck in safemode, though it isn't!

I have installed Windows ME and the display is in 16 colors. I have an ATI Technologies Rage Orion Video card. I suspect that I need an update driver or a ME update. Under System Summary>Problem Devices> I have the following lines:
IRQ Holder for PCI Steering PCI\IRQHOLDER\60 error code 22
IRQ Holder for PCI Steering PCI\IRQHOLDER\62 error code 22

Under Components>Display> I have the following:
Name: STD PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA)
Adapter Type: Not available
Adapter Description: (STD display type)
Bits/Pixels: 0
Driver: c;\windows\system\VMM32.vxd (,1,019.88KB (1,044,352 bytes) not available)

I found updated drivers for Rage 128 that should work with the Rage Orion and within ME. I can not install them because I get an error during installation that states I need DirectX 8 installed. I downloaded DirectX 9 (dxwebsetup) via my other computer to a floppy and tried to open it on the computer in question. It starts to install but quits because of an error that states "try later or check network". Is that the only way I can install DirectX which is needed to install new drivers? Is there another way to fix the 16 colors to 32 colors?????
 

A:Solved: Display in 16 colors-Want 32 colors. Do I need a new driver?

does your motherboard have an on-board video? if it does, enable your video via bios and uninstall (add/remove hardware) your video card. if you can access the internet then try downloading DirectX. install your video card afterwards. or if you dont ahve on-board video and can access the internet, download directx directly and see what happens try installing your driver again. good luck with windows me.

A:Stuck in 16 colors ??????

Hi and welcome. Reinstall your video drivers from the driver cd. There should be a setup.exe file on it.

And I don't think you are in safe mode, it doesn't say safe mode in all 4 corners, correct?

Another thing you can try, is shutdown to a command prompt, then type scanreg/restore and press enter.

Is there a restore date prior to the problem, but not the very oldest date?

My desktop icons are stuck at 256 colors, and nothing I do seems to help.

I know there was a similar previous thread, but that was never resolved, and was over two years ago, so I thought that a new thread was appropriate:

I'm running Windows 2000 on a Dell D600 with a Mobility Radeon 9000 display adapter.

A couple of weeks ago, I ran into some problems with Excel where something didn't display correctly in the Normal view, but it worked fine on everyone else's machine that I tried.

So an IT guy came in remotely and completely reinstalled Office. That helped (but did not completely fix) the problem. But for some reason, that put the display driver back at an earlier version. I could no longer do extended desktop (with two monitors). I didn't notice this until after I hung up with the IT guy.

So I had another IT guy get the latest driver compatible with my laptop and OS. Then I was able to do extended desktop.

However, after I changed some display settings (notably NOT colors, which was always set to 32 BPP), I noticed that all my icons had reverted to 256 colors. Some of them don't even have an 8 BPP version, so naturally they look awful.

So, I tried setting the colors setting to 8 BPP and back again, but that didn't help.

I recently took the video card out of my Windows box and put it in another computer. I figured Windows would auto detect my onboard graphics card after that but its stuck in VGA mode and there isnt any option to change color depth or resolution.

No driver for any monitor or graphics card is listed in device manager and I the "properties" button is greyed out in Settings >> Advanced >> Monitor and the monitor listed just says "Default Monitor".

Thanks in advance...

you need to download and install the proper drivers for your onboard. What motherboard do you have? If the onboard graphic was default when you originally purchased the computer, you should be able to go to the computer manufacturers website and download the drivers you need.

hi there

about a year and a half ago I got a Nobleview 1770A (Nobilis) 17" monitor
today I reformatted the hard drive on one of my computers and now cannot get out of 16 colors
I believe it has something to do with the display adapter and/or monitor drivers
is there a site I can go to get the right drivers?

I have been all over the internet hunting Nobleview and Nobilis with no luck on what to do.
the best I can come up with is the the machine I have running XP says Plug and Play monitor driver and the display on the 98 machine says B1770NSL on Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) and the colors are just not right...somewhere I read I will never get out of 16 colors if I can't get the display adapter right.

Any pointers you can give would be sooooo appreciated![email protected]

I am officially afraid to touch my computer. The story of woe starts like this:
-Windows media player nine was playing a radio station. I clicked it off, but the music kept playing. I rebooted the computer, and it seemed to work fine.
-The next time I tried to scandisk the computer, it said a program was writing in the background so it kept restarting.
-I went control-alt-delete to see what was running, and the computer shut itself down.
-when I turned the computer on, the screen only had 16 colors.
-I went into the active desktop, customize and re-set the colors to 256, got the message to re-start my computer.
-every time I re-start my computer, its back to 16 colors.

-I got a message about QuickTime running, so I went to uninstall it, in add/remove programs. I got the message do you want to uninstall QuickTime or completely remove everything in QuickTime (not recommended)
-so I uninstalled it, and got the message successful un-installment. But when I scrolled down the list, QuickTime was still there.

Please, please help. Since I canít scandisk, the computer is REALLY slowing down, and Iím afraid it will permanently crash. (Iíve had to delete the hard-drive before)

Hi Everyone

I am convinced that unless I am lucky enough to reach someone who has had this same problem .. I will never be able to fix it.
I have a Gateway GM5045E MCE PC.

It is based upon the xp pro.

It has the Nvidia GeForce 6200 Turbo Cache card. (Integrated with the onboard chip)?

Well, a little over a year ago .. The display colors went south on me.
(Washed out with the reds showing as almost black).

The pc sat in a repair shop for 2 months with everything being tried.
New video card, new and more powerful power unit, new drivers .. etc. etc.
Nothing ever worked and no solutions were ever given.

I put the pc in the closet for 6 months and then one day, on a whim, I pulled it out and did a complete destructive re-install.

It had Beautiful color again after the install .. for about a week.

I kept using it for a few weeks and .. once in a while the colors would flash back to the correct colors.

They would only stay 'correct' for a short time then revert to the washed out look.

New cables, different monitors .. all the hardware checks out.

Heres my Dilemma: From right out of the box, I could never get a display when hooking up to the 6200 card.
It's always had to run through the onboard port.

Checking in Device Manager, Belarc Advisor and Everest .. according to their stats, I have only a GeForce 6100 in the display Adapter category.
(I'm guessing that is the Northbridge Chip)?

I've tried and I can't load the GeForce 6200 driv... Read more

On installation of the program (Cisco IP Communicator) the screen drastically distorts itself (image attached). The computer needs to then be re-booted in order for the colors to return to a normal state. However the cycle continues if the program is then opened again.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem with any other program?
All the drivers are up to date on the machine, and I haven't seen this issue occur with the Cisco program before (installed on 50+ Win7 machines), neither does it occur with any other program.

Hello,

I have a Satellite C70-C-1DV, and I have a problem with the way colors are displayed: Different (similar) colors are displayed on screen as identical colors - for example, RGB 0/0/0, 1/1/1, 2/2/2, 3/3/3 all are displayed as just black. See this picture with 10 light and 10 dark colors - on my display, I only see three light and three dark colors.

The problem becomes particularly annoying when watching movies with dark scenes, because on my screen, there you do not see fluid color transitions, you always see lines where one color ends and the next color starts.

Any hints on how to fix this problem?

I received a replacement laptop from Dell to replace a defective XPS 13 9343.  They sent me a 9350 model (the warranty states Dell will send me an equal or better system replace my defective laptop).
However the monitor on the replacement seems like it's substantially lower quality.  The listed specs are:9343:13.3 inch UltraSharp(TM) QHD+ (3200 x 1800) InfinityEdge touch display9350 replacement:13.3" QHD+ (3200 x 1800) InfinityEdge touch display
As you can see from this photo of the laptops side-by-side, the 9350 (LEFT) whites look very washed out.  The white is almost a yellow compared to the 9343 (RIGHT).  The difference is very noticeable:

My questions are:
1) is there a settings in the Intel HD Graphics control panel to adjust the "whiteness" of the display?  Or in Windows?  (the new replacement is an upgraded Windows 10 vs Windows 8.1 on the old laptop).
2) could this be a problem with the monitor itself?  A sub-standard or defective monitor?  Is there a way for me to check what the monitor is to determine if it's a lower quality monitor?
3) or does the 9350 just ship with a lower quality monitor?  What feature of the monitor determines "whiteness"?  Contrast ratio?
4) what are my options?  I don't know too much about laptop displays, but paying a few hundred more for an upgraded display and then seeing the "whites" look almost yellow has me disappointed

A:XPS 9350 Display colors look washed out

Did you ever get an answer to this? I received a replacement screen for my M3800 and it's clearly an inferior screen/panel. Has the same yellow-ish washed out look compared to my old one which was a lot more vibrant.
Did you find the settings?

I'm sorry if this is the wrong place for it, but it seemed appropriate as I'm trying to calibrate with the nvidia control center or the windows color calibration.

So I recently got a second monitor which is working beautifully, but the old monitor's color is off now. If I could adjust the colors via Nvidia or the windows calibrator it would solve the problem. When I adjust, for example, gamma, the changes occur as expected but then switch back to how they were after about a second.

The same thing happens with nvidia controls or windows controls.

Thanks for your time.

Hi, I am getting random lines or colors when I go to desktop or hit refresh. It appears randomly. While playing games, running other applications, it doesn't seem to appear, but still, it appears randomly. Here is an image of a same web page, opened in two different tabs. You can see that in the rightmost part of the screen(where we have the option to scroll the web page) there are two tiny lines of red color. Its there in one tab, but not in any of the other tabs in the browser. Here are those two tabs.

There is also a small white-squared box near the right side, but that one is my mouse cursor.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
