Having problems with your eMachines W3611 PC Desktop ?

Unable to change color depth...

\015 My OS is XP. I have a viewsonic VA1912wb monitor and a ATI Radeon 9550 graphic card. I just tried to play game, but was told I need to set 256 color... I can only use 16 and 32 (medium and highest). How can I get it to let me change to 256 color...?\015

Ok I think i found your problem. You don't need to install any drivers.

\015\012Switch your display to 256 colors\015\012\015\012\015\012To switch your display \015\012to 256 colors
\015\012Some games and other software programs require that your monitor be \015\012set to 256 colors, or they run better in 256 colors. Many of those programs will \015\012switch your monitor to 256 colors automatically when you start the program. For \015\012those that don't, follow the steps below if you want to switch the display \015\012temporarily while the game or program is running.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other \015\012program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties. \015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. Click the Compatibility tab. \015\012
  4. \015\012
  5. Select the Run in 256 colors check box.

    \015\012
  • The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the \015\012program. \015\012
  • \015\012
  • Try switching to 256 colors if your software program shows the wrong color \015\012or the graphics redraw slowly. \015\012
  • \015\012
  • If your software program appears in a small window in the center of your \015\012screen, you can increase its size by changing your screen resolution \015\012temporarily. Follow the procedure above, but in step 3 select the Run in \015\012640x480 screen resolution check box. Your screen resolution will revert to \015\012its previous resolution when you close the program. \015\012
  • \015\012
  • The Compatibility tab is available only for programs or games located \015\012on your computer's hard disk. It is not available if the program is stored on a \015\012floppy disk, compact disk, or a network.
