Default Can only get two colours on Monitor? Advice needed

I just installed Windows 98 2nd Edition on four-year old computer with LG Studioworks 700S Monitor. I find when I go to Control Panel/Display/Settings that there are only TWO colour settings (2 colours and 16 colours). The Screen Area slider 640 by 480 will NOT slide. The Monitor is set to Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA). I downloaded a driver from Driver Guide for this Monitor. But when I tried to install it (to change the old driver) I failed. I was asked for a file with an .inf extension. The downloaded driver had a .icm extension. I tried reinstalling Windows 98, but this made no difference. How can I get the choice of monitor colours required for many of the programs I want to work. Someone suggested it might be the graphics card? Can you help?

Try going on Driver Guide and looking under your video card manufacturer to see if you can get a driver compatible with Win98SE, and second, make sure that when it downloads, it downloads an inf file.
