Updated: 01/05/2018 by Computer Hope

What to do if your Windows NT computer is only able to run at 16 colors after being first installed.

  1. Obtain at least Service Pack 3 or the latest service pack available.
  2. If, after installing SP3 or higher, the video continues to only run at 16 colors, obtain the latest video drivers from your video card manufacturer.
  3. Check the HCL (Hardware Compatibility List) that Windows NT 4.0 supports your video card.
