Hi.. I had to fix a pc which involved formatting drive then reloading system.... (233Mhz 2.1gig 32Ram - win95c) now all I can get the thing to allow for colour settings is either 16 colour  or monochrome.......well it works but it's not that great to look at....I am aware that clean install of windows will load this 'standard vga' driver....how can I get back to having a greater choice of colour...I dont know what the video card looks like I've had the pc in pieces and just dont know.... (lol) so.....how to fix please.   ???  All contributions WILL be appreciated thank you......

Well, if it is a separate card, it's the one with the monitor connector. The mark and model can nomally be found on the card itself, or on one of the bigger chips. Graphics circuitry may also be integral to the motherboard. If that's the case, you'll have a ribbon cable running from the MB to the monitor connector. In these cases it can be a bit difficult to determine what kind it is, but if you have (or can get hold of) info on the MB, it should be stated there. Once you have established which graphics adapter you have, you must hunt for drivers. Try www.driverzone.com for example.

It may be the TX98B at the following site. Drivers can be downloaded for it there.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?
