I need 32 bit true color to run this particular application. Currently I am using Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller version 4.13.01.3196 and the colors that I have is 16 colors, 256 colors, 16 bit high color and 24 bit true color. I desperately need 32 bit true color so how do I go about getting it? Thanks.

If the video adapter doesn't support it 32bit then you won't be able to get 32bit. It is related to how much Video RAM is available and if there isn't enough built into the adapter then your are stuck with only the resolutions it can handle.

Best solution is install a video card that can handle 32BIT.

Also lets say you are running the resolution at 1024 by 768 and 24BIT is the most colors listed then if you step down the resolutiion to 800 x 600 then 32BIT may become available.

Or if the resolution is set at 800 x 600 then step it down to 640 x 480 and 32bit may become available.

I was just looking at a pdf file on the specs of the Intel 82810E Graphics Controller and it shows 24BIT as the most colors it supports.

What program is it, Only Pre-Press application need to run @ 32 bit. 16 bit is fine for human eyeballs.

well the program is fifa creation centre. is there any way i can make the program run without using 32 bit?

Commented:
Umm, I tried the program and can't figure out a way to bypass the 32 bit colour depth check, Although strangely enuff I can change to a 16bit colour after the program is launched, and it seem to run fine. My assumption would be that when you go to export you custom skins to Fifa 2003, they have to be a 32 bit colour depth for them to be compatible.
Simplest solution is to install a new video card.(cheap MX440 GF2 AGP, not the best but very cheap and super compatible)
With your type of onboard video card, I would hazard a guess that you don't have an AGP slot. If this is the case I would recommend a Cheap TNT2 PCI card or a Geforce2 PCI if you want an increase in games performance. And considering how badly Fifa2003 would run on a Intel(R) 82810E , this is something your whole computer needs, not just this Creation centre program.

Ok, so that means there's no way I can download or update my driver in order to get the annoying 32bit color thingy? And that the only solution for my problem is to get a new video card which supports 32bit color? Well personally, this is bad, cos Fifa 2003 works fine with my Intel(R) 82810E, so I don't see the point of getting a new video card just for this creation centre program however, you might be right too. I might need 32 bit color for some other games. I might consider the video cards which you recommend Novahux. Thanks.

Trust Me, Fifa looks better than Television running @ 1280X960 32bit colour (well after a few beers @ least).

Lol... ok after I've got the cash, I will get a new video card, but for now I can only repress these burning desires of creating my own football team.
