Error Messages:

Have Windows 98 NE operating system

Am using 14 inch SVGA monitor
- Graphics card is NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64
I cannot change the screen setting above 640 x 480 and 16 bit colour.  Have downloaded new drivers from internet and installed these.  Error message says that there is a problem with adapter type or that the hardware I am using is not compatible with the program.  

Do I need a new monitor?  or is there a problem with the graphics card?

I would lean more towards your monitor as being the problem. If you want to go to a higher resolution and higher bit rate for colors, I would definitly get a new monitor, I would got with at least a 17 inch monitor, they are farly cheap now a days.

Where do you see this error message?

Make sure your Monitor Type is not set to "Standard VGA 640x480"

Start > Settings > Control Panel
Display > Settings tab
Advanced button > Monitor tab

If set to "Standard VGA 640x480"
Hit the "Change" button
Next, select "Display a list...", Next
Select "Show all hardware" to see the list of manufacturers
If yours not there, select "(Standard Monitor Type)"
and then try the setting "Super VGA 1024x768"

You should now be able to crank up the resolution!
