No, I've never heard of a standard driver supporting 256 colors.

The drivers should be available from the motherboard or system manufacturer's site.

You have to find out what video card (onboard) you have, then download & install the appropriate drivers. Try the motherboard manufacturer's website. If you don't know what board you have, try downloading/installing Everest Home Edition or CPUZ to help you to identify your hardware.

OR...you could just open up the case & have a look for the model number.

no comment really, just an add on to the question, as i am waiting for my download from lavalys first to see the manufacturer on my motherboard..i am not computer savy so to speak, but once i find out my info on my motherboard, as you stated "You have to find out what video card (onboard) you have, then download & install the appropriate drivers"

i assume i can find out that info from the maufacturer's website? and i also assume they will probably have the driver and download info there?

If (and only if) the motherboard has an integrated (built-in) graphics controller, then sure, try the board manufacturer.

If it's an add-in card, once Everest has ID'd it, perform a 'net search for the appropriate driver for your Operating System.

As a rule, (and for best results) you should post your question separately rather than tacking it onto someone else's
