Monitor result change 16 colors


One of your applications are changing your color scheme to 16-bit because it isn't compatible with your OS or graphics card. Try reinstalling your drivers, then disabling programs one by one when the problem occurs. For example, games that used to run on windows XP or older tended to change the color scheme and resize the monitor to 480p.

My monitor gives 16-bit color at 640x480, but will only offer 256 colors at 1024x768 -- and only displays 16 colors when I select that... In order to access resolution options, I have to go into Advanced...


The monitor has no influence here - something is wrong with your video card: either its driver is missing (or corrupted) or the video chip has failed.
Uninstall all the drivers for the video(except the generic VGA one), from Programs and Device Manager
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/f/open-device-manager-windows-7.htm
and reboot several times then go to Dell
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
select your pc and get the correct driver.
If that doesn't fixes it then the video chip has failed, you will need to buy a new video card.

My lcd colors are in a 8 bits and i cant change it i think the drivers are missing


That is the video card driver in your PC, not the monitor driver problem. You should go to the PC manufacturer or mother board maker web site to download the correct driver for your video card.
Make and model of the PC?

The color bit depth is controlled by your PC Video card, monitor will show what it is being fed with. Please check to see if you have correct video card driver installed in your PC and the video card has enough memory to provide the 32bit color depth.

Pixels only goes to 640X480


When you cannot increase the screen resolution nor a higher color bit, this usually means the video driver has defaulted to standard VGA driver and 8 or 16 bit color.
Install or re-install the latest video driver for your model video card.
When the correct video driver is installed you will be able to change the screen resolution and 32 color bit.

My color monitor (hp pavilion mx70) is having graphics problems


Need to download correct graphics drivers and then you will be able to change the options. If you already have up to date drivers then you need to Right Click on desktop and select properties and then click on the Settings Tab and change it from 16 color to Highest (32 bit). Oh, go to manufacturers web site to download drivers.

The monitor only displays either 1920x1080 resolution with Low (8 bit) color or 800x600 with High (32 bit) color. I have uninstalled the video card and monitor drivers and reinstalled them a million...


It appears that your video card does not support that resolution and color depth. If you've installed all of the proper drivers from the manufacturer, re-check the maximum specs - sounds like you're looking for HD (1080) and the card can't deliver in full color (32 bit).

You need a video card driver, but didn't specify which video card you have. Looks like this -might- be the right one:
