    Just reinstalled Win98 and only have 16 colours. Have tried to find a driver thro DriverGuide, Microsoft, and other popular driver sites. I have a Liteon A1554NEL monitor. My windows disk would probably have a driver, but I don't know what to look for as its all abbreviated or code. Help would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem as CallyB. Please could you tell me what "Everst home" is?
    Assuming that it is some sort of software that tells you what sort of motherboard and graphics card is in your computer, where can I get it?
    And, once I have the necessary hardware info, what would I do next?

    Thanks, YorkieB

    This is the link to the Everest download. It is a utility that among other things will ID what's in your system. Download and run it and then look under the Display heading for the make/model of your video adapter. This will give you a starting point for where to find the drivers that you need.
