    Just got a computer and it was from the company i work for. They had to clear the hard drive inorder for me to have it. Everything works fine but can only get 16 color with 640 by 480 resolution.The screen looks awful. Have tried different drivers but with no luck. My video card is integrated to the mother board.Windows is saying it is a standard vga. Can I just install a new video card in an expansion slot to avoid this major headache?:mad:
