Windows 98 stuck at 16 colors and 640x480 resolution


Recommended Posts

So I got this old Pionex computer back in December. I tried to dual boot it with NT 4.0 for some reason, deleted the whole OS by accident, reinstalled it, and now, it's stuck with 16 colors and a 640x480 resolution! I've tried everything, from drivers to SciTech Display Doctor to reinstalling it yet again, but nothing seems to work

It only goes into true color when I open up a DOS application

Hi FelixPls1. Not familiar with Pionex computers. If graphic resolutuion worked well before, then it's not likely a hardware issue, probably just driver related. It would be helpful to provide specific information regarding your graphic driver chipset.

I believe it's Intel Pentium III

:hello:

 

This information does not help us. Do you have exclamation or question marks in the device manager? And where? Did you install a chipset driver? Please install a system information program, e.g. Everest 2.2 (2005 free) or a later trial version and give us the information about your motherboard/chipset and the graphics unit!

...Pionex computer...

Ah yes, have several of those. Loved the cases. I used to buy them just to get the cases and use them for building newer machines. :)
