I didn't want to mention it *cough* it's an old 486 with integrated tseng chipset. I can only manage to have depth 8 max on it. Anything higher X won't start. Depth 4 has ugly colors but normal fonts though.
I am wondering if it could be hsync/vrefresh. I don't know the exact specs for my monitor (have been search for the past week everywhere) but I approximated as best as I could.
Well ... if the chipset is built-in and old you may be
blowing the video ram's possible colour/resolution
combinations ... which res are you trying to run, how
much dedicated RAM has the tseng chip got? :)
