During complete reload the monitor settings changed to VGA and 24 colors. I need help changing them back to SVGA and 256 colors as some programs refuse to load until I do (H.P. Printer and PhotoSuite-so far.) Am only moderately computer literate, so remember that in your help instructions. THANKS

After reinstalling Windows in many cases you also need to reinstall various drivers that Windows doesn't supply.

Take a look in Device manager and see if your video adapter is listed. Also look for yellow exclamation marks. These indicate devices that have a problem.

Did you get a CD with your computer that refers to the motherboard or video card. If so, you need to run them.
