|Ugghh - I sent a reply that didn't post. That stinks. |
Anyway your responses prompted me to look a little more closely at the laptop. Evidently I had been tricking myself.
I was changing the resolution and then setting the color depth to its highest setting (24bit).
On this PC 24 bit color appears to be tied to the 800x600 resolution and 16 bit color is tied to the 1024x768 resolution.
So I guess I was chasing my tail. I've never seen the Colors setting directly associated with a resolution but I've never heard of this graphics card (or chip) either.
Thanks for the replies and the help.
