The display adapter is CGA but has access to a pallette of 16 colours but software has to be written to access it. The only software I have found that will work with it is GEM although not the version shipped with the PC1512. The driver can be found here on John Elliots site.

The monitor is CGA only although it can display the extra 16 colours provided by the display adapter (more on that another time). It has non-standard connectors (good old Amstrad) and will only work with a PC1512 and it is impossible to connect any other type of monitor to it so you're stuck with it (the PC1640 is upgradeable - sort of).
