My Daughter has a game that requires the Colour Setting to be changed from High Colour (16 bit) to 256 colours, but when I go through Control Panel - Display - Setup - and change the colour setting the following comes up
"The Display control Panel is unable to change the Display settings. Please check your display hardware in Device Manager"
How do I do this?

I am running Win ME

This solution (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/Q185/7/66.ASP&NoWebContent=1) relates to Windows 98, but could easily apply.

Try this:

Right click on the desktop & go to properties

Then click on the settings tab

Then under "colours" change it to 256 then click on apply then ok

Hope this helps :)
