Right-click an empty space on your desktop, then click Properties - Settings(tab), change the color palette to 16-bit high color, then click Apply - OK. The screen may flicker briefly after you do this, and you may be prompted to accept the new setting.

If your computer refuses to accept the new color palette setting, you may need to download and reinstall the video drivers for your computer's display adapter/video card.

Sounds like you need to reinstall your video drivers. Do you have the cd that came with the computer, motherboard, video card, whatever the case may be? There should be a setup.exe file on one of them for the display adapter.
