I have put a larger monitor on a computer running win 98 which has had harddrive reformatted, and now I can only get 16 colours.
When I first booted the computer with new monitor it loaded Standard PCI Graphics Adapter(VGA)using the win 98 disk.
It rebooted and loaded Plug and Play monitor also so using the win 98 disk.
But all I can get now is the option of colours or 16 colours.
Is there away of fixing this

You need the correct video drivers for the motherboard (assuming here its on-board video)
While you are at it, you should load the correct audio and other chipset drivers as well.

A reformat has removed them from the system. Either resort to the original CD, or determine the make and model of the motherboard and search for them on the makers website.
