Using 32 bit colors on P-III, i810 based motherboard with Windows 2000

Hi,

I want to configure my computer running Windows 2000 Adv. Server to use 32 bit colors on a resolution of 1024 x 680 pixels, but in the display properties dialog I can only see up to 24 bit colors. Please suggest whether at all it is possible to use 32 bit colors with i810. If yes, please let me know from where can I get the appropriate display adapter drivers to accomplish the same. I already have the latest Intel display drivers installed.

Thanx in advance,
Ashish.

it will be impossible.  Everything depends on the onboard video and most onboard video does not support 32 bit.  I have looked on the Intel website and they never really said anything about colors.  If you have the lastest drivers and you can not select 32bit then it is impossible.

This is not a software problem , but rather a hardware limitation.  I would guess that there is no way around it.
