okay, the other day my computer froze like all day, so finally it did not freeze, but it came up only showing 16 colors, not 256, it sucks becayse you can hardly see anything. When i change it to 256, it changed back to 16. My computer genius friend says that i need to buy a new card or something that costs like 200$. I really need to fix this, and how can i completely reinstall windows, because this is really aggravating me. :mad:

The first thing that I would do before I reinstalled Windows was to download the latest video drivers for your video card and then install them. Doing this should fix your 16 colors problem and could also fix your freeze problems. Freezes and lock ups are generally caused by corrupt, damaged, incorrect, or out-of-date video drivers.
