Standard PCI graphics adaptar VGA

Specs: Windows 98
Hi
I have a very old computer with Windows 98. This had to be formatted and after formatting, the i am unable to install some other games/ softwares because the display has now changed to 16 color. (Before formatting 256 color was available). I tried to change it back to 256 color, but system does not allow selection of any other display. I have a monitor which shows as 500G in system, and display adaptor as standard PCI graphics adaptor VGA. I have sound card in system CT4810. I do not think there is any video card. How should i get the 256 color setting back? THe computer is not connected to net. I will have to install any driver through CD..
Can someone help.

Well, there has to be a video card/chipset, otherwise you wouldn't be able to see anything. You need the correct driver to get anything above 16 colors. Google for Belarc Advisor or SIW to find out what video drivers you need...
