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.
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
256 colors is a quite old settings for a computer. All modern monitors/laptops come with 16 and 32bit colors, which is FAR more advanced than the old school 256 colors.
There's no driver required to support that setting as it's relatively useless and antiquated, unless you're in a situation where you need to run a program/game in 256 color mode, which you can alter by right clicking the icon, selecting properties, then the compatibility tab and checking the "Run in 256 colors " box.
Ok I think i found your problem. You don't need to install any drivers.
Switch your display to 256 colors
To switch your display
to 256 colors
Some games and other software programs require that your monitor be
set to 256 colors, or they run better in 256 colors. Many of those programs will
switch your monitor to 256 colors automatically when you start the program. For
those that don't, follow the steps below if you want to switch the display
temporarily while the game or program is running.
On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other
program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties.
Click the Compatibility tab.
Select the Run in 256 colors check box.
The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the
Try switching to 256 colors if your software program shows the wrong color
or the graphics redraw slowly.
If your software program appears in a small window in the center of your
screen, you can increase its size by changing your screen resolution
temporarily. Follow the procedure above, but in step 3 select the Run in
640x480 screen resolution check box. Your screen resolution will revert to
its previous resolution when you close the program.
The Compatibility tab is available only for programs or games located
on your computer's hard disk. It is not available if the program is stored on a
floppy disk, compact disk, or a network.
There is a setting force tv detection. Sometimes this needs to be enabled to work properly. Also make sure3 that your desktop resolution is not too high for your television. I have a plasma tv so I can use 720 and 1080 p but my x1950 could only use a max of 1024x768 resolution.
why you want to change in to 256 colours if you change it your display colors will be change 16 and 32 is high colours and 256 is true colours then your games does not work on 256 colour or softwares also
