    :confused: I just bought the CD-ROM Scrabble Game, I loaded
    it on my computer then got an error message saying I had
    to have 256 color mode. That is greek to my computer ignorant
    mind. I do know that I have Windows 95. Is the color thing
    something I can buy and install or what? Thanks

    Before playing the game, you have to set your display properties to 256 colors. Go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel. Double-click on Display. Click the Settings tab. Look for a drop-down box labeled something like color quality. Select 256. Your background might look funny at this setting, so after you're finished playing the game, go back into that setting and change it back to what it was.
