I have Win 98SE as an OS.  I am trying to configure the display adapter and the sound.  I have installed Standard PCI Graphics Adapter and in the Sysedit I have the driver under 386nh as display=*vdd, drv *vga.vxd of which I have added.  Under display it does not show 16, 24 or 32 high colors.  The CPU is Sis 530.  How do I get the Display (under Control Panel) to have the higher resolution colors?  Right now it just shows 16 colors. There is no video card installed. The documentation of the computer doesn't mention which drivers to install.   Please comment soon.  

Thank you.

I am assuming that these devices are onboard the motherboard. You should have a motherboard CD that includes the drivers for these items. Select your model motherboard from the CD, and pick the corresponding drivers for the hardware included with that motherboard.

If you do not have a motherboard installation CD, post the make and model of your board here, and we will try to help find the correct drivers for you.

Thank you for your help.  Installing the drivers for the sound card and the display from the motherboard CD solved the problem.  I appreciate the help.
