My question is more hardware than software.
I'm using delphi 4. My problem is i can't run delphi 4 on my computer if the monitor display's color is set to high color (16 bit) it always freeze when I run delphi. If I set it to 16 color only delphi runs with no problem.
Now I purchased Delphi 5 but I'm not able to install it because i'm sure I'm going to face the same problem.
My video card is S3 Virge FX/GX 375/385
4 MB purchased in 1998. I'm using Win95
I have P 233 MHZ with 64 MB Ram.

Please advise me what to do.
