Get a better video card so you can run 32 color. Or if you have a good card re-install the drivers.

Did you buy this computer from Dell or HP or did you install the video card yourself?

First find out what chipset your card has ( nvidia, ATI, Matrox, etc. ) then go to their respective websites and download the latest drivers. If it's an onboard card ( not a seperate card but built into the motherboard ) then look for the drivers on your motherboard manufacturer's website. If it's Dell, HP, or Compaq, go to their sites and do a search for your system, then display adapter drivers. BTW, what OS are you running? Win XP should have the drivers for MOST video cards, except for brand new ones.
