    well this is going to be hard to explain I think because I dont know all that much computer
    lingo but here goes. Well the problem is that my computer will only stay on a 16 color
    640x480 display and its not in safe mode and if u change it says it has to restart to make
    the changes and it just restarts back to the 16 color carp. I have tried everything I know of
    can u help me?

    Hello cmartinpat and WELCOME!!

    Go to Device Manager / Display Adapter / Remove whatever is there and restart you computer. Then you will need to reinstall your Display/video adapter drivers.

    Hopefully that will fix your problem.

    I'd start be reinstalling the drivers for your video card. If that doesn't work, please post the model of computer, type of video card, and OS that you are using.
