    setting up more colors

    I have a REALLY old laptop (12 years) that is on windows 3.1 and the colors on the screen where shot but know i have an external one hooked up but when i tried looking at pictures it did not have enough colours like i have a greyscale pic that shows as three distinct colours black white grey is the a way with plugins to get more colors i know the screen will work because it is off a newer computer
    here is what the pic should look like.

    Dude, the monitor MAKES NO DIFFERENCE, the video card which powers the monitor must be capable of the colors in order to display them.

    From the sound of things, you seem to have a monochrome video output, wich cannot distinguish that many shades of grey.

    Go buy a new laptop, or dither your image down to 3 colors using an image editing program.
