Question: 256-Colour Driver

I have a game here that requires a 256-colour driver in order to play. Is there a site that I can go to and download a driver?

Preferred Solution: 256-Colour Driver

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently had windows uninstalled and reinstalled on my puter. (Win98SE)

The problem is that I now only have a choice of either 2 or 16 colours on my screen whereas before I scrubbed the machine I had 4 gazillion colours, well loads anyway.

I am told that I need to DL a particular driver or drivers to sort this problem out. There my knowledge ends on this subject.

Do I need a driver or drivers? What ones? How do I find them? Do they automatically install and run when downloaded or do I need to make adjustments after downloading?

Help would be greatly appreciated guys and girls.
 

Answer:2/16 Colour driver problem

Hi Weeian, welcome

First off a few questions to get the ball rolling......

What Windows version ( or Linux ) are you using?
What Motherboard or CPU do you have?
What Graphic Card do you have?


to aid you in finding these answers, download this Everest ( free ) install and run it, then click Computer > Summary and you will find the answers for my questions in that list.

Then we will be able to aim you to the correct drivers, as you have re-installed the Operating System its most likely you will also need the Chipset/Motherboard drivers as these aid other drivers to be found and installed correctly.

I am trying to help a relative out. There PC is only showing 16 colour display. I have tried going into control panel and making adjustments there but there is no change on reboot.Device manager shows device is working OK and that the best driver is already installed. Could the driver be corrupt even though it says everything is OK? It is the default driver from Windows ME.ATI Rage Pro Turbo AGP 2x

Answer:16 colour display. Best driver already installed?

The chances are that you do not have the corect drivers installed and/ or you either have default vga settings in 16 colours.Get as much info about your graphics card and visit thier website for the latest drivers. Download them (they sometimes come with the install program as well)and follow the instructions if there is an install program or change them using device manager.There are lots of solved threads dealing with 16 or 256 colours if you need any more info. sometimes its quicker to reaearch these instead of waiting for someone to reply to a question.Good luck.

Last Fall I changed up to a 17" Monitor,made by Dell, used, and a the same time installed an SVGA card. I cannot get 256 bit color resolution nor can I get past 840 x 600 pixels with the Hardware Graphics Accelerator on high. The SVGA card came with its own software which I did install but I am wondering if there is a conflict with the differing driver software, like the Microsoft vs the Card software that is causing all this. Do I need a dedicated driver file for the Dell monitor and, if so, how do I get one without having to deal with Dell's cookie monster? Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Colour vs Monitor Driver File Issues

Since the video card was installed at the same time as the monitor, it is much more likely to be the source of the problem.

How much VRAM is on the card? A 1MB card will not be able to run more than 256 colors at any resolution higher than 800x600, for instance.

Hey! My W530 came with windows 8 preinstalled. Unfortunately I got sick of it after 2 months of use and decided to install windows 7. After turning off safety boot in the bios menu, windows 7 worked pretty good. I'm only having a few issues at the moment. - Some hardware is missing its drivers. I installed most of the drivers (needed ones) as far as I know. But in the device manager, its showing me that software is missing.- X-rite colour sensor is not working. It worked in windows 8 and I absolutely love it. But when I try to make a new profile (calibrate), it gives me an error (not sure what the error is in english, so here goes google translate: error setting calibration-initialization) and three beeps. Some of my own thoughts are that, when I had windows 8, my screen showed up as 'Thinklad LCD' or something similair (in the screen resolution menu). Now it shows up as 'screen of portable computer' (this is obviously not the exact term it shows, its the standart name that windows shows for monitors and displays. hooray for google translate again). I was guessing that maybe I am missing a display driver (even though I could not find one myself). And since it shows 'ACPI' at the device manager at 'unknown device', I am guessing it has to do with a harddrive driver? I really tried my best spitting out the forum, and google. But I got no luck. I really hope someone here can help me (again). Thanks a lot!  Image showing errors and what not... Read more

I have just installed Windows ME and I am stuck in 16 colour display.I have run SiSoft Sandra and know that the mobo is a Micro-Star BIOS ID 61-0504-001169-00111111-071595-440BX. The information on the video adapter states Model: Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) Hardware Revision: 003 but no manufacturer.Anybody know where I can go to download a driver to increase colour? I have tried Windows Update and the mobo manufacturer website without success.

Answer:Problem finding driver to resolve 16 colour issue

I dont know how old the PC is, and you havent stated what graphics card you have or whether its an in built version on the motherboard. ?If its an Nvidia set up, then go to there website and download the latest video drivers, along with the latest Direct X version and this should resolve your problem.If its an ATI version then go to there website.If you dont know , download the following program ( AIDA 32 ) similar to SI Sandra and this will tell you what video display card you have.Just run the program then click through until you see video display.click hereRegardsJungle

Hi there gurus.
My pc doesn?t show certain colour objects in Publisher 2007 and some on-line sites. Overall, the screen colour is very good. I know the fault is localised, because when I switch to Print Preview in Publisher it looks fine and I can see all the object colours. (I only lose the colour with objects, not text)
Also, when I send a copy of a Publisher page to my partner who is on the same PC, it looks fine on her screen.
I?ve tried going to Install/uninstall programs and run the Repair, but to no avail. The guys in my computer shop are clueless without seeing it. Anyone who can help solve this for me is a gem.

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great

Thanks
OM
 

Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

Hi, I'm using the Aerolite theme with Aeroglass, and want a consistent colour for the borders. So I set accent colour from background 'off' and choose the colour. Fine so far.

Now that's ok if I log off and on.

But if I sleep or hibernate (not personally ) and then resume, the colour and setting are lost.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello.

I seriously need help with my PC. I've reinstalled Windows XP and Service Pack 2, and I can't chnge the Screen resolution or the colour quality. It sucks. The resolution stays at 800x600, the lowest possible, and the colour quality stays at 8 bit. I think I have a ATI 128 MB DDR Radeon 9800 Pro. I dunno whether thats a driver or what. And I also don't know my graphics card, or whether that will help at all.

I would swear at this point but I'm too young.

Oh but I'll use this instead

Okay, it has to do with your drivers. Go to ATI's website and find your driver.

Here's the link

Please download and install both the Control Center as well as the Display driver. Then restart your computer and try to change the resolution.

Hi,

I know some basic stuff about computers, but I don't know how to fix this problem.

I have Windows XP. Firstly, the computer started running slower than usual for a while (a few weeks), then one day when I started the computer up, a screen came up in the DOS bit at the start asking me what mode I wanted to start in as there was a problem. I selected the option (and Im paraphrasing here) 'The last good configuration' as it seemed best. From then on, the colour went to 4 bit, and an 800x600 resolution. I can't change these settings as I normally would, as there are no other options available. I can use the computer fairly normally, except the awful colour and res. However, if the screensaver comes on, and I re-activate the screen, it will be totally messed up - the edges puffed out like a pincushion setting, black and white, lines travelling down the screen and flickering, sometimes going totally black then coming back again.

My housemate started the computer up and somehow got the original DOS screen back asking which mode to start in - he selected 'safe mode' and the colour was then good - except the internet then wouldn't connect. (I have broadband so it's normally automatic - I don't know how to connect it manually)

This is my brother's computer, so I don't know a lot about it - programs and so on - he's un-contactable at the moment and will be for a couple of months... I'd greatly appreciate any he... Read more

Answer:4 bit colour - why?

Hi There,

I have a dell inspiron 6000 with mobile intel chipset 9145. I am trying to play TV out, but whenever i attach it to the TV - i am only getting black and white. I have tried changing the colour adminstration within properties to kodakdc and srgb colour space profile but i am still having the same problems.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks
 

Answer:Tv out Has No Colour

It could be a PAL/NTSC setting somewhere. Some laptops have a BIOS setting for TVout. If it's set for NTSC and the TV is set for PAL, or vice versa, you will get video issues. I had a an old DVD player that was 'stuck' on NTSC only. When I tried to play a PAL movie in it, it would play in black and white. Check the back of the TV or wherever all the control switches are (or just read the manual). Check the PC BIOS and the TVout settings if using separate video hardware/software....

Good luck!

Until recently I used Netscape 7.2 and subsequent to that Opera vers 11. These both colour coded the wind speeds and gusts and the expected temperatures; you know ranging from blue for cold to red for hot. For various reasons I have had to make use of IE-8. I can't get anything in colour. Temperatures and wind speeds are just black numerals on a white background. I've searched through IE's options but can't find any tweak to resolve this. The URL is www.windguru.cz and I'm running XP home. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Question: colour quality

When I download still images from my camcorder on to my computer, the colours look very dull and lifeless-very different from how they look on the LCD screen of the camcorder. Is there any software that could improve image quality?

Thanks-this is a great site.
 

Answer:colour quality

If you just want to pep up the image a little, Irfanview is simple: www.irfanview.com It is primarily a viewer, but it has some tools for tweaking an image.

This is freeware that will do a better job: http://www.freewarefiles.com/programs.php?ProgramID=1012&categoryid=3&subcategoryid=36 It is a lite version if their shareware program, which is excellent for the price. The freeware has the things you need like histogram and saturation that Irfanview lacks. You can download the manual for the full version at their site.

If you plan on spending the time to really learn photo editing and donít want to spend any money on a program, Gimp is now available for Windows. It isnít easy to learn, but has the capabilities of a good intermediate graphics editor: http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/downloads.html

These are also free and will do a nice job:
http://www.ab.wakwak.com/~knight/
http://www.serif.com/photoplus5/index.asp

If you want to buy an intermediate image editor, Uleadís PhotoImpact and Jasic Paint Shop Pro are both excellent. From the reviews Iíve read PhotoImpact is easier to learn and at least as full featured compared to Paint Shop Pro. They both have 30 day free trials if you want to try them:

Question: Excel and colour

I was recently given an excel sheet for risk Assessment, all set up cos i know nothing. Any how one of the cells reads High,Medium or low depending on the input of other cells.Thing is when I got it the writing was in red as opposed to black to highlight it. Since then I have obviously changed something because this cell is now in black. Hope that is straight forward and thanks in advance

Answer:Excel and colour

Does it appear in black whether it says High, Medium or Low? It may have been set up with Conditional Formatting to change the font colour depending on the content of the cell.

Question: Colour Problem

I have recently bought a new rig, it runs perfect in games, however, I am having a small (but somewhat annoying) problem.

The colour quality seems to be low. I have it set to "Highest (32 bit)", but all colours seem to be messed up. I have included a couple of screenshots of my desktop, and one of a game, to show what I mean.

Desktop

Game

I have a GTX 260, with the latest driver installed. I spent quite a while messing around with my monitor settings, to no avail.

Specs (if needed):

Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.4GHz
Gigabyte GTX 260
Gigabyte EX58-UD3R Intel X58 Motherboard
Corsair TX 650W
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Colour Problem

I don't see what's wrong with your desktop...

As for the game screenshot you provide:

- Most games have their own color settings. Desktop color depth is not automatically applied to games, this has to be done manually in most cases.

- This game seems to be quite old (judging by the polygon count of the models), are you sure that it fully supports your hardware? Do you have any screenshots of newer games with the same problem?

I'm wondering if it's a problem with your printer or printer drivers instead of MS Word.

What version of Word are you using? Usually Under "Help" "About Microsoft Word" or if it's MS Word 2007 you probably won't find that menu

Hello, When i take digital photos of lets say a white building it appears exactly right on the screen, however when i print using my Epson Stylus C60 with fresh cartridges installed(and the same with the old ones)the white building is more of a greyish/purpleish/pinkish colour.This fault is there with all colours but is most apparant with white. any advise would be greatly recieved. Thank you. Mike

Answer:Colour representation

What program are you using when printing your digital prints? When printing photo's etc from other sources do they differ as-well. The type of paper you are using can greatly effect the colour output, I found using 180 photo paper from click here improved colour output, the ilford paper available from pc world was pretty good to. You may need to set-up your monitor and the colour profile for your printer. Most photo programs have a gamma set-up program to adjust your monitor correctly, have a look at click here and click here to check your monitor.Your printer may then need setting up to match the profile of the monitor. I am using an Epson C70 and I had to set my profile as RGB colour scale. You will find this setting in printer properties in colour management. You could also go into the custom advanced settings of the main Epson print page and adjust the levels of brightness/contrast or the ink levels.

Hi. Am a primary school teacher who'd like a colour printer at home for convenience (print about 100 items a week on average: nearly all Word documents).

I would not print photos that often - perhaps once a month.Am I expecting too much for that price?

Would someone recommend a good colour printer. I am willing to pay upto £100 but I don't want one that guzzles the ink!! It will mainly be for photos. It doesn't have to have black as I have a cheap black printer which is excellant for docs etc.

Answer:Colour Printer

We have an HP 3650.You can't go far wrong with HP printers, their printing times can be slightly slower than other computers but Ink Cartridges tend to last for about 2 months - when the low on ink appears the ink cartridges normally last for another 2 weeks.We used to have an Epson but now we wouldn't get a Printer that isn't an HP due to the ink cartridges lasting longer, the ink cartridges being cheaper, and HP printers being more reliable than Epson anyway.

I have a compaq prosignia which has an Abit Motherboard BL30G with a P4 1.6 cpu.

Some of the icons have a pinkish tinge in the background, in particular the Control Panel ones.The desktop icons are ok and almost all the other ones.

Hello Lenovo, I would like to know, if w530 support 30bit color on display port, and if yes upto which resolution.

I heard that some people had problems with resolution 2560x1440 + 30bit color depth. Thank youMartin

Answer:30 bit colour support

Total speculation but I think it's possible as the external ports are driven by the NVIDIA card, which isn't limited as the Intel card is.2560x1440 at 30bpp at 60Hz may be hitting a bandwidth issue even for DisplayPort.

Question: colour printing

I have tried to print colour photos on photo paper using a HP5652 I get a yellow picture. Yet if I use plain paper I get a proper picture. I am using a photo ink cartridge as well as the colour cartridge. Any suggestions I have tried in vain using different settings and photo paper.

Answer:colour printing

From what you describe it could be the paper'setting on the printer or some close to it.If you visualize it for one moent youet set up the printer to print either on plain paper or photo paper- you do dont you?If you dont investigate the printer set up protocols.Assuming you do- then as far as the printer is concerned, and assuming all colours are workingas you infer they are[good picture on plain paper]then it would not matter too much if you fed the print a shredded wheat packet- it would not affect ink delivery.By the by the best mode for colour photos, not with standing the paper type or brand - Ink Jet Transparancy - it is also very economical with the ink.

Hey guys.

This is my second time with this issue and I'd like some help with it. Been looking online and I can't find anything.

Basically, I'm using my computer:

Windows 7 Home Edition x64 bit
i7-860 quad core 2.8Ghz
6gb ram
Nvidia Gts 240 (soon to be replaced)

And at seemingly random times, the taskbar along the bottom of the page which is normally transparents turns a sort of bright blue/white colour along with the tab bar at the top of whatever I'm using at the time, usually an internet browser. When this happens I can then hear the fans inside my machine spinning up, I open up RealTemp and the temperature shoots up. The first time it did it It went from around 20 to I think 100 because RealTemp marked one of my cores as "logged" today when it did it the max it got to was about 60. But I wasn't doing anything such as playing a game, I had Skype, Opera and maybe Steam open all at the same time and it got to about 60 degrees in a matter of seconds, then after staying there for about half a minute came back down to around 20.

Any ideas?

I thought it might of been the heat sink, but it seems to be securely fasted. I bought some quality thermal paste and I plan to remove the paste that is currently on my CPU and replace it with this. Is there anything else anyone could reccomend?

A bit of a strange request, but after searching everywhere that I can think of for hours, I can't seem to find a solution.

I am a teacher, and several of my pupils have a problem reading anything on a white background. I can often change the colour of backgrounds, but there are certain applications where it's not possible.

So, rather than ask how to remove a colour cast from my monitor, I'd like to be able to overlay a blue or pink colour cast on my entire monitor - can anybody tell me about any software which has this functionality? I'd like it to be configurable and easily 'turn off and onable.'

Alternatively - any easy to use colour profile management tools for windows xp? The microsoft color management control panel plugin doesn't seem to make it possible to achieve what I want.

Many thanks,

You need to install the correct video card driver to get your colors/resolution back.

http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=32 download this program and check -> Devices ->Physical Device and see what it lists for a video card or just physically look at thecard to get a make/model. Once you have that go to the manufacturers website and downlaod the correct drivers. Once installed you'll get the colors back.

I ask because Half the colors from this message board do not appear in FF.

For example. My name, in IE, is red. In FF, my name is black. On the index page there is a key that identifies the members and who/what they are.. In FF, only around 5 or six actually have colours. The rest are black... Even tech which should be light blue, is bold black.

Is there a fix, patch or any thing I can do to get FF to recognise colours like IE does?

I'm guessing there's no patches as this version of Firefox was downloaded two days ago....

The other day I inadvertently spilled a cup of coffee while at the computer.

Since the liquid did not spill on the computer, monitor or keyboard I am wondering if this problem just co-incidentally happened after the incident although I find that hard to believe.

Answer:Epson colour 440

Sounds like you downloaded the wrong driver.

On their Windows driver page (assuming you're using Windows) there are several options.

If you're using WinXP, the only WinXP applicable file listed is actually a Monitor utility, but it does not state that it includes the driver (never safe to assume anything).

But if you are using WinXP, it already has many printer drivers included.

Try this:

Right-click My Computer
Select Manage option
Select Device Manager
In right pane, expand [+] Printers
Select your new printer
Uninstall the printer
Reboot your system and see if WinXP automatically loads the driver
This means WinXP already had the correct driver.

If this does not work... Is your printer "new" to you (used from someone else)?

If it is actually store-bought new, it should still be under warranty. Go through the store or Epson and get the CD you are missing.

Hi, Try this before you do anything else.Right click the Desk Top/ Properties/ Settings tab.Check that the colour is set to High Colour 16 bit. Now click on the Advanced Button at the bottom/ Gamma Correction tab and check that the slider has not been moved up to the top (Bluish).If it has, return the slider to the centre (uncalibrated).I hope this helps.

Ok, so for some reason unknown to me the colour on my pc has gone all funny. Not sure how to explain it but the colours are all wrong and it's hurting my eyes cause I can't fix it LOL Please help! I have tried looking for something that came unplugged, nothing. I've tried restarting twice, I've checked my settings nothing is different.
Thanks!
