    Hey guys I've just added a workstation to the network, but my brain just went into retirement mode. I'm trying to add more color to this workstation. I went under Control Panel>Display>Settings and in the Colors options it's only giving me the options for 16 colors and I need, I beleive 32 or 64. Can I get some help?

    I thought color availability was limited by the video capabilities of the onboard vga or video card.

    you may only get to choose from 256 or 16 bit.

    Have you tried changing the monitor properties, dim, contrast, etc.

    Yeah, what type of video card is it? You might want to try installing/upgrading the video card drivers

    If I knew how to send an attachment I would. That way everyone could see what I'm talking about.
