Hi, I have recently upgraded to XP, Every time I start up Pc the colour quality reverts back to 16 colours, I then change it back to 32 bit colours in the settings section of the control panel and click apply and everything works fine until next time I restart or power up and it's back to 16 colours again, How do I get it to stay on 32bit colours. I had no problems when it was on ME.
As an aside, there is no need to use 32 bit color. 16 Bit looks EXACTLY the same, and only uses 1/2 the resources as 32 Bit. The naked eye will not pick up on the difference between the 2 settings, and your system will obvioulsy run and refresh faster using the lower quality (!) setting.
Hi Sorry everybody, It's not 16 bit colour it goes back to it's 8 bit colour. It works fine on both 16 and 32 bit colour once I have changed the settings but reverts back to 8 bit on restart or powerup. I am using a voodoo 3 graphics card on a brillianx series intel 440bx pentium based motherboard which is running a pentium 3 at 800mhz. I am about to try checking for updated drivers for the graphics card and see if that sorts it.
