Screen resolution limited to 16 bits in Windows 98
Could you please help.
My Pentium 3 850 MHZ computer crashed last week and I wiped the Hardrive clean and reinstalled Windows 98.
The installation went fine except that the 14 inch Casper G4 monitor now only works in 2 or 16 bits!
I changed display settings both in Windows 98 Control Panel Display and also in the BIOS - but have been unsuccessfully to increase the resolution of the screen, even using the correct viedo card driver (Cirrus Logic 5440).
Upon boot up - I see that in the the PCI Device Listing there is NO
IRQ # for the Display Controller. I believe that is the source of the problem - is that right?
The current BIOS is Award Modular BIOS v4.51 PG:
BIOS ID: 04/13/2000-693-596-W977-2A6LGPNEC-00
Chipset: VIA 82C691 rev 68
Super IO: Winbond 977TF rev 0 found at port 3F0h.
Please let me know your thought on how to resolve the screen resolution problem asap.
Many thanks and best regards,
Here's a link to describe the color bit depth:
the 16 bit color is actually in the 64,000ish range, not 16 million. Just a minor correction...
Are you absolutely certain you're using the right driver? *google search* Do you own a Packard Bell?
Not that I know anything about your setup, but is it integrated video or an actual card? If it's integrated it would share system memory, and in which case you'd just increase the video memory share in the BIOS. Please post back with your specs.
I used to have a cirrus logic card.. did tehy go out of business? if not, what are they called now?
