Hope someone can help me with this tricky thing.
I have a Texas Instruments Extensa 510 Notebook. Nowadays i think its Acer Extensa.
Anyways. I had it stable running unter Win 95A but had to upgrade to Win98. The Graphics Driver will not let me switch to 16 Bit Color mode although it lets me select that Option. If I do and reboot it reverts to 16 Color saying that the Hardware does not support this mode. Intels Website knows of the Problem and they postet a workaround but this doesn't work on the Texas Instruments.
Installing the "latest Driver" fouled up the system so bad that i had to completly reinstall it because it wouldn't let me install another Driver from there on (in secure mode) and crashed with "windows Exception" if i tried to boot up normally.

Well this is tricky hope SOMEONE knows a solution.

Although I already give up hope since not even Intel can help me.
