Setting Display Color (Only two options - 2 colors 16 colors)

After formatted the HD and reinstall win98, I can't set the display color more than 2 or 16 colors.
How can I restore the correct driver for the onboard video-card?
On the Adapter Tab I read: Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (Software Version 4.0 - Current files V.G.A.drv.*vdd) ?

Wrong forum. This is HP-UX. Try:

Issue #1: This is the HP-UX group not the M$ group. Lots of folks here would tell you to install Linux.

Issue #2: You need to go to the manufacturers web site and download the specific video drivers for your machine.

Tell us more about your PC and your video. What model PC, is the video a separate card? If so what is the model number?

Your problem is that Win98 has not found a video driver which fits your video. We can probably point you to the correct driver but need to know the above since there are thousands of them.
