Stuck in 16 colors, 640X480 Display.
Posted on 2000-03-10
Here's a new one. Have just upgraded to AMD K-6 III 400MHz; have Matrox Millenium video card, 128MB RAM, & old Sound Blaster 16 bit ISA sound card. New system has no sound, and I can't determine why. Plug & Play doesn't recognize the sound system.
MORE IMPORTANTLY, the display is STUCK at 16 colors & 640 X 480. I usually run 16BIT color and 1024 x 768!! Going into Control Panel & Display and changing the Settings is totally ineffective. After setting it to 1024 x 768 and 16 bit color, it ask if I want to reboot the system, and after the reboot I'm back at 640 X480 & 16 colors.
It all began when removing MS Cordless Wheelmouse (pointer too jerky to use in art work) and installing old Logictech 3 button Mouseman. Neither mice are recognized as PS/2, only on the serial port. Logictech installs, but not 3 button software.
Anybody seen this before??? It's driving me up the wall!!!
