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.

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.
First of all you can check the computer by connecting another monitor to it to see if the problem goes away...if so then the problem would be in the monitor. If not , then I would try to change the video grafics card in the computer(assuming you don't have built in video). If you have built in video on the mother board then you will either need to replace the motherboard or disable the onboard video and install a video card
PCI local bus
Intel 810E (on motherboard)
11 MB shared memory, integrated graphics, not upgradable
Feature connector (game/joystick)
640 x 480: 16/256/32K/64K/16.7M colors
It appears the graphics card driver has not been installed. Check the device Manager and if you get a yellow ? against the Display Adapter then you need to install the graphic driver. If your computer is a Compaq or HP then you need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model computer and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers :- http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
If your computer is not a Compaq or HP desktop computer and you know the make and model of the graphics card in your computer then go to the graphics manufacturer's WEB site to download the graphics driver.
I suggest uninstalling SP3... do you have System Restore turned on? Google how to check...
If you do, try rolling back that way. Start>Run>restore <enter> and the restore window will appear. Choose the restore to an earlier time option, and hopefully a choice for 'SP3 installation' will be there. Choose that to roll back... good luck!
The computer in question has two graphics cards in it. A GEForce 8400GS Graphics card and an onboard graphics card. It could be possible you are plugging the monitor cable into the wrong graphics card slot. The onboard graphics card slot may be a different color than the GEForce graphics card slot. Check the back of the computer to see if there is another spot to plug in the monitor.
