    Hello all,

    First, I installed pinnacle studio 10 on my Sony Vaio Laptop when this issue started happening.

    Whenever I restart my laptop or start the pinnacle application, my monitor flickers as if changing the resolution, a bubble pops up near the time and says that the color quality has changed from High (32 bit) to Medium (16 bit), also my monitor's brightness dims in the process.

    To correct this all i have to do is change the brightness back, and change the color quality back to High, not that hard, but annoying.

    Any reason why it would automatically change these settings? Anyway of preventing this?

    Thanks guys.

    Nevermind folks, I believe I fixed this.

    For some reason, the installation of the application modified the battery settings I had..wierd.

    Thanks anyways.
