    How do I change the display settings to 256 Colors in MS Vista?

    The only options give under the display settings are 16bit and 32 bit.

    I am trying to install a game for my daughter.

    Thank You

    might post this in too, but which game
    are you trying to install?

    Vista disables 256 color mode by default, but if you right-click on the
    install file, select properties, then the Compatibility Tab there should be
    an option to run in 256 color mode, though I don't know of many games where
    setting your system to 256 color mode will fix the installation program.

    Good luck,
