I have read some of the posts here about the system restores done--guess I'm not alone that some things didn't work!
My screen is now at 16 color, not 16 bit, but 16 color. (the only other choice is 2 color!) The screen looks like I am in safe mode. I had done one other system restore about 4 yrs ago, and didn't run into this.
I had origionally had several choices 16 color, 16 bit, 256 color, 32 bit--can't remember if there were more.
Between that previous restore and this one, I had upgraded to ME (bad move, long story, needed to restore! LOL!) And had added a video card-- ATI, I think.
I wanted to take this backwards, and not reload the video card so my son could play his out-of date games that needed to have 256 color, as it was always messing up the computer with the ATI card. (as well as other problems) I may have ruined that ATI anyway, because on reading the other posts, I just learned i was supposed to unhook a lot of stuff. (I didn't disconnect the cable, printer, router, or do whatever it was that I was s'posed to do with the ATI card!
(just picture Edith Bunker on a computer, huh? LOL!
What can i do to get my colors back?
I do have another problme, maybe not related, so i will start another post, based on what i read in "before you post here"
