I want to change my monitor colour temperature

When you use the Colors window to select colors for text or objects in a document, you can also assign a color profile to the document. Color profiles help ensure that the colors you see in the document onscreen match the colors in the document when it's printed or viewed on another computer.
To choose a color profile for a document:
  1. In your document, select the text or object whose color you want to change.
  2. Open the Colors window.
    In some applications, you can open the Colors window by choosing Format > Font > Show Colors or Format > Show Colors. In some applications, you can also click a button in the application's toolbar or a settings pane.
  3. Click the Color Sliders button.
  4. Choose a slider option from the pop-up menu.
  5. Drag the sliders or enter specific values to adjust the color.
  6. Click the colored box next to the pop-up menu and choose a profile from the list.
If you open your document and the colors appear in a different shade or hue than you expected, the application you're using might not recognize color profiles. Try using the generic color profiles instead.
In some cases, an application may not open documents that use non-generic color profiles.
You can create your own custom color profiles using ColorSync Utility. For more information, open ColorSync Utility and choose Help > ColorSync Utility Help.

Run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.

  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the wizard, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The wizard is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.

To change compatibility settings manually for a program, right-click the icon for the program, click Properties, and then click the Compatibility tab.



Compatibility mode

Runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Try this setting if you know the program is designed for (or worked in) a specific previous version of Windows.

Run in 256 colors

Uses a limited set of colors in the program. Some older programs are designed to use fewer colors.

Run in 640 × 480 screen resolution

Runs the program in a smaller-sized window. Try this setting if the graphical user interface appears jagged or is rendered improperly.

Disable visual themes

Disables themes on the program. Try this setting if you notice problems with the menus or buttons on the title bar of the program.

Disable desktop composition

Turns off transparency and other advanced display features. Choose this setting if window movement appears erratic or you notice other display problems.

Disable display scaling on high DPI settings

Turns off automatic resizing of programs if large-scale font size is in use. Try this setting if large-scale fonts are interfering with the appearance of the program. For more information, see Make the text on your screen larger or smaller and Ways to improve display quality.

Privilege level

Runs the program as an administrator. Some programs require administrator privileges to run properly. If you are not currently logged on as an administrator, this option is not available.

Show settings for all users

Lets you choose settings that will apply to all users on this computer.

How to use aero again after installing vista inspirant 1.1 brico pack

Right click on the desktop. Click on 'Personalize' in the drop down menu. Click on 'Window Color and Appearance'. Then, look for and click on ' Open classic appearance properties for more color options'. Then, from the color scheme list choose 'Windows Aero'. Click 'OK'. It'll say '..please wait' while your screen blinks, or goes grey a few moments. And you're done.

If Windows Aero does not appear on the color scheme list you'll need to find where on your system that the 'Theme' files reside as a possible solution and load them from the 'Theme' choice on the Personalize screen used above.

I am unable to adjust the screen resolution of my computer

I'm assuming you went into the desktop properties and went to setting and attempted to adjust it there. It also says it's in 16bit color mode and won't let you change it to 32bit.

This is usually cause by not having an updated video driver. Try looking up the model of your machine and download a video driver for xp and install it.

It should display fine after you do that.

My computer turn on color quality in 4 bit no choices

If I understand your description the video display setting is only allowing 256 colors. Basically this means the video driver being used is a generic display driver not the actual one you need to run. You need to find out what video card you have and download and then install the drivers. After that you will then be able to select the higher resolutions and color settings.

How to change the button color in Delphi

Alas, you can't change the color of a Delphi button. Delphi's buttons have the same color as Windows' buttons. This color depends from the Windows version (XP, 2000, 98,...) and from what might have been changed by the user in Windows' "Display Properties".
There is no standard Delphi method to make a button "flash" (such as for example Button1.Flash). But you could imitate flashing by showing and hiding the button's caption (text) every so many milliseconds, under program control. If you are interested in this, let me know and I'll figure out some source code :)
Second solution: imitate a colored button. Use a TPanel component instead, it also has OnClick, OnMouseDown and OnMouseUp events just like a button has, but it also has a Color property.
In the OnMouseDown event handler, change the panel's appearance: change the BevelOuter property to bvLowered, and restore it to bvRaised appearance when OnMouseUp comes. If you want to try this, let me know and I'll cook up some code :)
Last possibility: get a custom button component that has a color property. There are several freeware colored buttons around on the web.
