Location: N/A
Country: N/A
Date: Around 1999


Question:
My computer (P1 166MHz) tells me that the program I just installed won't work because it needs 256 colours. Now what?



Replies:
Eddie, in your display properties, select 256 colors. Some programs cannot handle 32 or 24 bit color depth. By setting your display properties to 256 you should be all set.

Thanks
Joe Noga
