    I had earlier posted a monitor prob and it is solved. I am having a weird thing happen now. I installed a new video card. (one that is says is compatable) I adjusted the vertical and horizontal settings to get rid of the black border through the video card and it is holding. the strange is when i click on a desktop icon, the application opens and color is fine, but the background colors seem to change back to 16 colors. the open application remains good. when i close the application all background returns to good. I changed monitors to test and same occurs on both monitors. I am wondering if the problem lies in th AGP slot or on the motherboard. I never seen this before.

    go into the device manager,and delete the video card
    reboot and press f8
    from the options screen that comes up choose vga mode
    when windows finishes reinstalling the card,then install your drivers
