    Unhappy Display problem

    A while ago I began to have problems with the display colors. When I went to Control panel> Display> Settings tab I saw that the color setting was 8 bit and not 32 bit. I reset it to 32 bit and clicked Apply and OK, but the next time I started Windows it reset itself to 8 bit. I tried "Troubleshoot" but could not find a solution. Can anyone help. My OS is XP Sp3. TIA

    Try setting it to 16 bit. 8 is too low and 32 it too high.
    I have used nothing but 16 bit color for years. Only set that one parameter and nothing else, before you SAVE and reboot. I've found you can't usually set two different parameters at the same time.

    good luck,
