my daughter shut down our computer before she went to bed. When she re-started the next day, the computer has only 16 colors, and now we can't get into things like print shop,snood,etc. Can anybody tell me what happened, and how or if this can be fixed? I'm not that computer literate, so any help is very much appreciated!!

Hi noclue2000, welcome to TSG.....

You are going to more than likely need to re-install your display adapters......do you have the cd that came with the computer or your video card?

Another thing you may try, may or may not work, when the computer is restarting, tap the F 8 key, choose command prompt only.

Once there, type:

scanreg /restore
and choose a day sooner than the problem, but not the 5th one.....
