Hi,

I seem to have a color problem with windows. when I reboot, the computer changes the apperence color and it won't let me change the color to 256. I beleive it started when I was using MS Paint and it's been doing that since. I was wondering what you think might be the problem and if you would be able to help me with a solution.

Right click on the my computer icon>choose properties>device manager>expand display adapters>click on what is listed>click properties>driver tab>update driver>when finished click remove and then restart your system. It should pick it back up when it comes up.

I had a similar problem once with Windows 98, only one video adapter in Device Manager and I would change it, then the default one would come back.
I finally went into the Safe Mode and went to Device Manager and lo and behold, there was the two video adapters, removed them both, rebooted and installed the correct one and fixed the problem.
Hope this helps you,
Del

Also make sure your monitor size is listed correctly. If you have netmeeting running in the tray that will also keep you from changing display settings.
