Default Video Card Driver issues

I thought it would be fun to open up an old computer of my to look at the ancient socket A. Then i got into fixing it, well i got it to boot up, but the video is not working well. I run my monitor through an old video card (a 3DFX voodoo3), both resigter as being hooked up, and i tired to install the lastest drivers, but the color wont go higher than 16-nit low. I try to change it under video properties to 256-colours or 16bit-high, but it just reverts back to 16-bit low. Any suggestions.

Delete any instances of the Voodoo drivers (Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and look for display adapter), delete your video card after in Device Manager and try to detect it again.

The drivers might need an update. How much memory is in there?
