Go to your device manager and see if you find any yellow or red warnings.

If so update the drivers on these devices.

Right click My Computer, select properties, select hardware, select device manager. (I am assuming your on Windows XP.)

You may have to reinstall the video drivers...check Device Manager.

I agree with hamluis. I had the exact same problem with my display driver once(stuck on 4-bit color and 640 x 480 resolution). Reinstalling (or installing a new driver), will probably solve the problem.
