Answers :

Do you have onboard video on this computer? If it has integrated video on the motherboard, the motherboard will be stealing (sharing) a small bit of your MEMORY for it's own use. This is normal with integrated video..
\015\012 If you have a video card in and expansion slot with it's OWN memory on the card , then it will not use the systems' memory.
\015\012 I would choose low density for compatibility with the widest range of computers.

Screen sizing Unit runs fine and I have restored it using the factory discs back to Win 98. It didn't run very fast with XP in it and some of my old favorite games will not run in XP and this is just the ticket. My problem is that I don't remember enough about Win 98 to get around a small problem. The RAM is maxed out at 180 megs and though the graphics card is capable of 32 bit True Color, every time I adjust it to True Color it resizes the screen and everything shrinks down to about 640 x 480.

Your problem is that the correct video driver is not installed and therefore cannot use all the video RAM.(the XP version of the video driver won't work with Win98).\015\012When you adjust to True color at a higher resolution it drops to a lowe ... PC Laptops
