Colour setting keeps reverting from 32 bits to 8 bits


Turn the laptop on and hold down the "Fn" key on the laptop's keyboard.


Tap the arrow key that has a picture of an open sun to make the laptop screen brighter.

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


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.


Color Setting


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

My Fuijitsu Lifebook E8410 is having problems! I can still use it but everything is enlarged and the colours are very weird. Can I fix it? Thanks!!


Right click on the desktop, select properties and increase your resolution (make numbers bigger). Ensure your color depth is set to high.

I have had my Acer One netbook for almost 5 months and during that time my screen has played up twice. It loses the definition and the colour is all over the place. The first time it went, it corrected...


Right click Desktop click Properties
Check that the resolution is on your normal setting and Colour Depth is set to 32bit
It might be worth checking you have the latest drivers for your graphics card

You can download Driver Genius Free Trial it will tell you what drivers you need for your Graphics
Then you can google them and download them

I think though what you are describing might be the ribbon cable attaching your screen to the laptop, this ribbon cable passes through the hinge of the laptop and sometimes constant moving of the screen up and down can damage the ribbon wire if it is not placed properly.

Goodluck

Hi

Thank you for your query

Please do the following

1) Right click on the desktop
2) Left click on properties
3) On Display settings windo that will open up please click on the tab entitled 'settings'

Inside this tab there will be a option to change the colour resolution and colour quality (i.e. 16 bit, 32 bit etc)

If the screen is in a blurred state you may also need to change the screen resolution

Nvidia 8600m gt graphic issue


Hi,
Whats the Operating System? XP? Have you downloaded & installed an updated driver? Sometimes the software driver corrupts & you should install the newest version from the website.

If you can get an external monitor, plug it into the external monitor port.. (most laptops have one) There will be a keyboard combination to switch between your laptop screen & the external monitor. This will help diagnose the fault. What is the results of the above? Rgds,
