I need a solution. My disk installation of windows sp2 causes my computer
not to see or use above 4 bit color mode, or 640 by 480 pixels. I installed
sp2 to find an intel audio driver. Can someone point me in the right
direction?

Why didn't you post anew then?

And have you checked the hardware manufcaturer of your video and sound
devices for hardware drivers?
(It is their responsibility to provide updated drivers to fix any trouble
you may have with that device.)

Why would you install SP2 to find a driver?
Go to the motherboard manufacturer web page if it is built onto the
motherboard..
Go to the sound card manufacturer if it is not built into the motherboard..

Visit the manufacturer web sites for the latest downloadable
drivers for your hardware/operating system. Always (IMO) get the
manufacturers' hardware driver over any Microsoft offers. On the Windows
Update site I suggest NEVER getting their hardware
drivers - no matter how tempting. Now - how do you know what hardware
you have in your computer? Invoice or if it is up and working now - take
inventory:

Belarc Advisor

EVEREST Home Edition
http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en

Once you know what you have, what next? Go get the latest driver for your
hardware/OS from the manufacturer's web page. For example, let's say you
have an NVidia chipset video card or ATI video card, perhaps a Creative
Labs sound card or C-Media chipset sound card...

NVidia Video Card Drivers
http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

ATI Video Card Drivers
http://www.atitech.com/support/driver.html

Creative Labs Sound Device
http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/

C-Media Sound Device
http://www.cmedia.com.tw/e_download_01.htm

Then install these drivers. Updated drivers are usually more stable and
may provide extra benefits/features that you really wished you had before.
