    I've just formatted my computer and before i formatted the colour setting was on 32-bit/ true colour. Now that i've formatted that option is gone and all i can choose is 16 colours and 256 colours.

    Can anyone tell me how to get the 32-bit/ true colour option back.

    I run Windows 98 and my current display is Plug and Play Monitor on Super VGA. I can't find a video card disk for it either.

    You need to install the correct video card driver to get your colors/resolution back.

    http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=32 download this program and check -> Devices ->Physical Device and see what it lists for a video card or just physically look at thecard to get a make/model. Once you have that go to the manufacturers website and downlaod the correct drivers. Once installed you'll get the colors back.
