Hi all,
I just added an edge 256MB 3.3v 168 pin SDRAM DIMM PC-133 on my Gateway P4 1.5Ghz with 256MB already in there.

After the install, my monitor went to 4bit color on and 800x600 display with no other options available to select. removing the upgraded memory had no effect, neither did;
-troubleshooting the monitor driver
-checking drivers for NVIDIA Geforce2 MX 200
-Reducing the hardware acceleration to minimum

Any ideas on what to try next?

Try reseating the video card. You may have bumped it while you were inside the machine. Ram itself wouldn't cause this to happen to my knowledge.
