    My old p166 finally bit the dust so i got a new computer from work
    but when i try and run anything in full screen, games , or movies the computer brings up a DDError msg and it freezes with the colors all messed up! I run it in 32 Bit color and 800 by 600 pixels , but when it restarts its in 256 color and 640 by 480 pixels.. this is really uncool cause i cant run any games!!

    First thing I would do is check for a video driver upgrade and reinstall directx.
