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.

I have a Dell Inspiron M4050 that had a cracked screen. I have replaced the screen with a second hand one.
However the display is very faint and barely readable.
I have searched online and found that this is either an issue with the screen or the inverter.
I cannot find an inverter on this model.
Am I right in assuming that it's attached to the rear of the screen?

Thanks very much.

Dear mods, I have noted a faint white dash (about 3 inches) in the middle of my P51 Screen which appeared a couple of days back. It looks somewhat like a stuck/dead pixel case. As possible solutions, I have tried the following : i. Battery Drain for 30 mins, and re-checkii. Disable/Enable the Graphic Card Provided that there are no easy solutions, I wish to know whether the replacement of screen of my product (which is still under warranty) will be covered or not? Regards,B.

I run a dual monitor setup with two 19" widescreen LCD's. This morning my primary monitor wasn't turning on. After some messing with the cord I got it to turn on. Later on it did it again, but I couldn't get it back on. I ruled out the cord by using a different one, something happened to the monitor itself. At first I thought the screen went out itself, but I managed to set both monitors up as clones and there's a very faint image on it still. I can see the things I'm doing on it, but just barely. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Hi there.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 and the display is very faint. But you can just about see it if you shine a tourch on it.
I replaced the inverter with a new one, but that did not cure it.
It feeds to an external monitor perfectly, and doing this I have reinstalled Windows xp pro with no problems.
So I presume the laptop is working correctly, and the screen is not damaged, as everything functions as it should, apart from the display.
Any ideas or help would be really great, as other than using it permanantly linked to an external monitor, (bit of a problem with portability...lol), it is a great laptop.
Many thanks in advance.
Deevie.
 

A:Dell Inspiron 1520 display very faint

The test you did with the torch would indicate the backlight has blown. It's a tricky job to replace it so if you are not confortable taking it apart I would get a (recommended) professional.

And, yes it is a great laptop, I have the exact same model.

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

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?

I did and then everything had a black background with neon letters. Whew! I tried to change it and now I have a white background with no color filler. My yahoo email screen is almost all white when it used to have some colors in it. Now it just has outline colors. Any ideas of what that could be? And how to fix it?

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.

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?

Hi,
Was wondering if someone would be able to help out.
I'm currenlty trying to install a Cisco VoIP solution on someone's laptop. They have a Dell Lattude E6400 running Windows 7 64bit.
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.
Slightly baffled!
Thanks

A:Display colors distort on install

Can you try running the program in Windows XP SP3 Compatibility mode to see if this has any affect?

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 have a 32MB Diamond Viper V770D Ultra NVIDIA and I can't seem to get more that 640x480x16. When I change it to higher resolution and color depth and restart my computer it just goes back to 640x480 and displays an error saying the I have the wrong video adapter for my hardware or the resolution and color depth I selected are not supported by my hardware. I know that I have the right adapter and I know it can support higher than 640x480x16 (checked documentation)

I've tried doing the following things to solve my problem:
Reinstalling my Video Adapter
Tried refreshing my video adapter
Tried updating drivers for both video card and monitor
Reinstalled Windows 98SE
Checked if I was going into VGA mode
If you know how to help please post a solution.
 

A:Video wont display more than 640x480x16 colors.

I have been having issues with my computer lately after a brief encounter with a couple of trojan viruses, which have been successfully elimated via McAfee Anitvirus software. It may be unrelated but ever since my display has been flickering from full color to a faded out bluish color. This happens most often when I initially start the computer and is intermitten. I am running Windows XP Pro, on a Gateway E 3400, Pentium III, 930 MHz, with 256 Megs of RAM. My adapter is a Rage 128 Ultra, 800x600 True Color 32 bit, 60Mhz. I have tried uploading to a new driver but I get DLL message that reads: 16 bit window subsystem: C:\Program1\symantec\s32evnt1.dll. An installable Virtual Device Driver failed DLL initialization Choose close to terminate application or choose ignore. Any suggestions? -Cathy

Hi, I 'm having problem with my new laptop screen display. (Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2nd  signature edition)I have noticed that there is like 2 different color areas. It's really visible when i'm displaying a white page. There is an 'external frame', 2cm  width from the screen edge, all around.In the external rectangular form, the white color seems yellow.  At contrary the center one has perfect white. As you can see here : Note: The problem is permanent. It also appears in the bios and in the display checking control. My laptop costed me almost $3k, I'm really disappointed. Is anyone experiencing the same problem ?

So I recently got a second monitor so I can work with two screens at once. As I kind of expected, I had to calibrate the monitors so their colors, brightness and all everything else match each other. But how much I may try, I can't manage to calibrate them properly. Worse, both monitors seem to be calibrated from tests, yet they still don't match.

It's hard to explain what the differences are, so I included pictures of them in the attachments. Take in mind that they're photo's from my phone, since screenshots obviously wouldn't work.

The first one, monitorDifference_blackgrayOnSteam.jpg, is made by placing the steam client over the two screens. The left side is from the new monitor, which seems to be more dark green, and the right side is the old monitor, which seems to be more light grey.

The second one are monitorDifference_foxOld.jpg (old screen) and monitorDifference_foxNew.jpg (new screen), which are from with a wallpaper. The old one seems to be more dull and brighter while the new one seems to be more colorful/warmer (?) and darker.

Just for the sake of having enough information, the old monitor is an Asus VH222H which I have for almost two years, and the new one is a LG Flatron IPS224, which is just a few days old.

These differences aren't everywhere or not as noticeable, but there are plenty things like the above two examples where the differences are big and annoying. So the question is, how can I fix this difference problem and make the monitors match properly... Read more

A:Dual monitors aren't showing the same colors/display

Are you using the sRGB colour profiles on both monitors?

It could be simply down to the age of the monitors - you probably didn't notice the changes with your old one until you hooked up your new one along side it. You might need to set the colour/brightness/contrast/temperature settings individually on one or both monitors to compensate for this.

I was recently shocked to discover that someone who's been one of my "e-mail regulars" for a few years now, says that the e-mails I send her in HTML format and in which I often use font colors are displayed on her computer with the standard BLACK font. That is, she never sees any colored fonts. Her e-mail client is Outlook Express (OS is Win XP). I immediately thought this meant that the checkbox "Read all messages in plain text" under Options, Read tab, was checked. So I told her to uncheck it. Her response: It was not checked. I then asked her to see if "Block images and other external content in HTML e-mails" under the Security tab was checked. It also was not.

So now I'm stumped. Anyone have a clue why the computer is not displaying colored e-mail fonts?

I have an HP dv7-6b55dx laptop with Windows 7 home Premium 64 bit, which I bought new around Christmas of 2011. It has a big 17.3" screen with a max resolution of 1600x900. I have seldom used it because the colors on the display are so oversaturated that it hurts my eyes. But my old XP laptop has bit the dust so I'm stuck with this one. I did send it back to HP shortly after buying, thinking I'd gotten a lemon. But they insist that there's nothing wrong with it.
 
I'm not very savvy with Windows 7 yet, and have not been able to find out if the color issue is an problem with HP or a quirk with Windows 7.
 
Is there a way I can tone down the colors so they look more natural? Right now reds and yellows are like in your face reds and yellows. And some shades of blue look more like purple. I like to do graphic work. But the overstautated colors make that nearly impossible.
 
Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
