    I have just reformatted my harddrive and reinstalled it programs. However my monitor now displays in 16 colors, and the only other option is 2 colors. The picture is of the poorest quality. I have deleted the VGA drivers and also the monitor driver itself and reinstalled them from the windows CD. Nothing has changed, I am still getting only 16 colors. Can someone please help?

    You need to reinstall the drivers for your video card.
    If you still have the installation disk you can get them off of it.
    If not, go to the manufacturers site and download new ones.
