Colour setting keeps reverting from 32 bits to 8 bits

Tap the arrow key that has a picture of a filled-in sun to make the laptop screen darker.

The laptop will automatically save the adjustments after you release the "Fn" key.


Screen Resolution


Click the "Start" menu. Click "Settings" and "Control Panel."


Choose "Display" and "Settings" in Windows 98, ME or XP. In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."


Click on the resolution bar and slide it to the right to lower the screen's resolution and to the left to raise the screen's resolution.


The optimum screen resolution usually depends on the size of the laptop screen.


The recommended resolution for a 15-inch screen is 1024 x 768, 17- to 19-inch screen is 1280 x 1024, and 20-inch screens is 1600 x 1200.


However, you can adjust the resolution to your personal preference.


Click ""Apply to see how the resolution looks on the laptop's monitor.


Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.

Click the "Start" menu. Click "Settings" and "Control Panel."

Choose "Display" and "Settings" in Windows 98, ME or XP.


In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."

Click "Colors." Choose 32-bit for a high color-pixel ratio that will make the colors brighter and bring out image details.


Choose 24-bit for a medium color-pixel ratio if the screen is too bright or if images are somewhat distorted.


Some older laptops have a 16-bit color setting, but this setting is no longer recommended as it will distort images and text.


Always Click "Apply" to see how the color setting looks on the laptop's monitor.

Click "OK" to save the color settings


hope this helps

Toshiba Satellite displays a 16-bit color resolution after I replaced the video cable, what is causing this?


Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the Display, then click the Settings Tab. You can change the color from 16 Bit and you can adjust the resolution.

You can also get to the display by clicking on a blank area on the desktop and select Properties.

Laptop monitor display problems!


Check your resolution and color settings.
  1. On a blank area on the desktop, right click and select "Properties" or go to Start-->Control Panel-->Display.
  2. On the "Settings" tab, verify the resolution is at least 1024x748 and the color quality is at least 16 bit. You may have to play with these values to get back to normal operation.
This is the first step, so let me know if it doesn't work!

Screen sizing


Your problem is that the correct video driver is not installed and therefore cannot use all the video RAM.(the XP version of the video driver won't work with Win98).
When you adjust to True color at a higher resolution it drops to a lower resolution because it has insufficent video RAM, but you will get a higher screen resolution at a 16 bit color because it requires less memory (video RAM).
Install the Win98 driver for the graphics card and then it can use the full video RAM at a higher screen resolution with 32 bit color.

Resolution change on my lap top screen when I load my webcam


I had this problem on my PC and I tried everything from updating drivers to re installing the software and updating my graphics card but nothing seemed to work.
And then as a last resort I right clicked on the icon on my desktop and chose properties and clicked on the Compatability tab and unchecked on display settings Run in 640x480 screen resolution.
This worked and did not affect the webcam in anyway.
