Default Graphics Question

This is typical of the situation where the monitor is not being detected by
plug-n-play. Go to start, control panel, display
properties, advanced, monitor and see if you can change the monitor to the
one attached. May have to look in SoftPaqs
for monitor update patch. If brave or knowledgeable, can select a monitor
with properties similar to one attached from
the selections if can't find right one.

I assume you tried to change the color depth after adding memory - may have
just defaulted to the safe mode.

MAY BE that installed memory is not recognized, in which case there is not
enough to support more color
depth. If the right monitor is recognized but can't increase colors, it's a
memory problem.

It's the card drivers. Gotta be. Find the right Softpaq and download it
and reinstall. Should fix it right up.
