    Hey everyone,

    I've seen this question come up a few times before but I'm really in a bind and it feels like I've tried everything - if anyone could help me out, that would be super cool.

    My friend just got a new (used) Dell computer for Christmas and doesn't have the option of running in any more than 16 colours. We have tried looking on driverguide.com and the Dell company website for the correct drivers but none seem to work. I was wondering if maybe someone else would have a better nose for searching out this kind of thing.

    He has an integrated motherboard, and I looked at it for numbers or other ID but really couldn't find much - it's a Dell dimension L866r, with Dell Rev A05 on the motherboard and some other numbers like AA-A01985-31 and in the middle, 00015JDG-12461-OC1-010Q. I hope this makes things easier...I feel badly asking a question that has already been answered a few times but I'm really not sure what else to do! Thanks for your patience. : )

    Thank you so much! I tried your link and it worked wonderfully - I guess I mustn't have been following the instructions properly the first time... : )
