|I had been using a Windows 98 First Edition computer in my office (Compaq Presario - only because I still use some MS DOS programs). I was able to get 256 colors and higher.|
I recently purchased high speed internet, but found out that I needed to upgrade to Windows 98se to be able to use it.
After I upgraded - although I am now able to access the internet - the computer will only allow 16 colors.
I googled this problem and reviewed numerous posts dating back to 2000 of many, many people having had this same problem. They were all desperate for help. A lot of people offered "answers," but none of them helped. I tried every proposed solution, but no matter what I do, nothing helps.
There are no conflicts in my Device Manager.
Aside from the primitive look of just 16 colors, I use certain programs that require at least 256 colors to be able to reinstall. (At least I used to be able to use them when the computer was still 98 First Edition.)
I would be most appreciative of a fix for this problem.
