Loaded Win98se only have 2 or 16 colors

March 20, 2011 at 18:52:35
Specs: Windows 98se
Installed a new hard drive & while installing Windows 98se drive was formatted. Now monitor settings only gives 2 or 16 colors & no pixel adjustment. I heard somewhere this is something to do with the motherboard. Any help getting things back to normal?
