Force 24bit color mode

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an old dell server with like 2mb of intergrated graphics.

If I want to run 1024x768, it forces me down to 16bit color mode and my icons look like crap. I can run 24 and 32bit in 800x600, but I can stand that low. Is there a way I can force 24bit color mode at 1024x768?

I would if I had one.

It doesn't even have an AGP slot.

This isn't a computer I'm spending money on. It is my 450MHz folding rig that one day I decided to attach a monitor to so I had something to do while reformating my main computer.
