Hey, I'd like to know why the S3 display drivers in NT 4.0 will support up to 1024x768x24, whilst the ones in NT 5.0 build 1585 will only support up to 1024x768x16 and how I can get back 24 bit color depth in the said resolution. I've tried installing S3's Trio64 drivers from their site and I get the same results every time, and using alternate drivers that do support that res and color depth turn out to not be compatible with NT 5. (even though their from around the same date and year. :/) Any help is appreciated.
Tis' pointless to flamewar over ponies and potatoes.
