Have a look at it in Device Manager, see if it needs the drivers re installing

Are you using the correct resolution for the monitor?

  chelle35 16:51 22 Nov 2011

its a tv/pc monitor and it works fine on my other comp but in safe mode i can change that and it recognises 32 bit but in normal mode it wont change at all and there is no other to change it to but 4 bit

Just an idea but did the computer originally have a graphics card and for some reason you have replaced that card with another one, or was there no graphics card originally, graphics originally running from an onboard graphic chip on the motherboard, which may need disabling in the bios settings for the card to function properly.
