    Default Can't change screen resolution

    I am trying to change my screen resolution from '1024 x 766 High Colour 16 Bit', to '1152 x 864 High Color 16 Bit'. However, when I select the higher resolution the colour setting jumpes to '256 Colors'. When I change it back to 'High Color 16 Bit' the resolution changes back to the lower one. (OS Windows 98SE) What's going on please??????

    Sorry that should read '1024 x 768' not 766.

    Your video card cannot handle the increased screen resolution and high colour requirements. You need to choose - one or the other.

    Thanks antmnnz & tweak'e. Had a feeling it had something to do with my video card, but it's good to have it confirmed. My V-Card: Voodoo2, - here goes some more money down the drain. :-

    MAke sure your monitor is correctly identified. If it is set to standard VGA monitor there is no way you will screw a higher res out of it.
