    I am having problems with my display colour setup since I reinstalled windows 98 SE. Images displayed in my web browser (internet explorer 6) are now blotchy. Everything was fine until yesterday when I reinstalled windows now when I change my screen area to 1024 by 768 the 256 colours appears patchy. This was perfect before I reinstalled I have tried to reinstall my video card and updated drivers but it still appears the same. I am using S3Inc.Trio 3D/2X. What am I doing wrong? Any help greatly appreciated.

    TIA Anais

    Why are you trying to run just 256 color? Can you turn it up to 16 or 24 bit? 256 color is blotchy on any machine if you are looking at pictures.

    Let us know

    Rugrat you where spot on with your advice thank you very much. I am not very experienced with computers and I must have spent the last 24 hours or so trying to solve the problem, I have uninstalled my video card and reinstalled it, I have searched for updated drivers and installed them. I have searched all over the internet and got nowhere. With your advice it was sorted in a second.....lol.

    Thanx once again Anais :D
