Firstly, I've lost my 256 settings option. The only options available are 16 & 32 bit.
Secondly, while trying to solve this problem I discovered the Windows 'Help & Support' is deactivated. How do fix these things?

Firstly, I've lost my 256 settings option. The only options available are 16 & 32 bit.I do believe that Windows XP does not actually have a 256 colour option in the display settings. You can set a program to run in 256 colour mode by changing compatibility mode settings in the program shortcut.

I believe that the 256 colour option is available if your driver supports it. You could try re-installing the graphics card's original driver.

I wonder why you would want to go back to 256 colours in WinXP though?

Additional to my post above...

As an example, I cannot see in Windows' desktop settings menu, any reference to 16 or 256 colours. However, the systray icon for my graphics driver (ASUS) lists dozens of resolution/colour depth settings of which a good number are 256 colour settings. One click and you're in 8 bit heaven - if you really want that.
