Can anyone help?

Windows 98 se

I was deleting some files from the remove/install programs in control panel.

When i went back to the desktop the colour was affected.

Went back to the display settings and could only select 2 or 16 colours.

Maybe i've deleted something i shouldn't?

Please help somebody

Many thanks

If you were highlighting programs in the Add/Remove Programs list and then were clicking "Remove", you were uninstalling those programs. I fear that you may have uninstalled the driver software to the display adapter, which is why you're only getting 2-color and 16-color. I'll bet too that the resolution has changed and that everything looks much larger.

It pays to know what you're uninstalling before you haphazardly start doing it.

You apparently deleted your video driver and are now defaulting to the VGA driver. Reinstall your video driver, if you have it, or download it from your card manufacturer or go to drivers.com, register and download the driver you are missing.

Try This:
Reinstall your video display drivers, by going into the Display properties.

Click the "settings" tab.
click the "Advanced" Button
click the "adapter" tab
click "Change" button
click "Next" in the wizard
select "show a list of drivers"
and click next

Wait for it to finish "building a driver information database."

In the new window, select "show all hardware." If it lists the correct Video card
make and model, click Next and finish it out.

If it doesn't, select your video card maker, and the model in the right pane. Click
Next and finish out; restart if prompted.
