How do you change the settings of colors display for your computer?


I am operating windows 98 and cannot get the display to show in other than 16-colours.

I have been into " control pane/display/settings " and altered the 'colour' box to 256-colours, but it reverts to 16 colours when I hit the "apply" button. This also happens when I set it to "Hi-colour".

Any ideas, please. All help much appreciated.
