Hi, I recently reformatted the hd on a tiny p11 400mhz machine and now the display setting won't give me more than 16 colours, possible cause could have been the fact that i used an old monitor intending to allow win98 to find the new monitor when resituated, alas the damn machine finds the new monitor which is svga but windoze still assumes the 16 colour mode and refuses to alter either the 16 colour setting or to deviate from 800X600 despite my efforts, i know i've been in this situation before but for the life of me i can't remember the solution, please help

The problem is that you haven't installed your video driver yet. About the monitor you just choose "Plug and Play monitor".
