    I have recently had a grahpic depth problem on XP. The graphics depth is set to 32bit but it looks like 16 bit or lower (grainy etc).
    I have tried absolutely everything I could think of.
    - Reinstalled drivers (its a Gefore4 MX440)
    - Relfashed the graphics card ROM
    - Reflashed MoBo ROM
    - Downloaded all the latest AGP drivers for the MoBo
    - Finally renistalled XP

    Still nothing! It still appears the exact same. Every diagnostic problem tells me the system is in tip top shape. Is there SOMETHING I can do??

    My next steps would be to;

    - Borrow another graphics card and try it
    - Completely reformat the computer and start again (I do NOT want to do that as you can imagine).

    If anyone has any other suggestions I would really appreciate it....

    Everything, desktop, online, pictures. I ran 3d mark 2000. Even when it "said" it switched to 32bit you could still see the lack of colour depth. I can see it, but apprently the computer is not aware of it!
