Maybe someone can help me figure out what is going on here. When I boot my computer, I only get 4 bit graphics and the system won't let me change it. This is a new problem. I figured a video card problem, but interestingly, when I boot in safe mode I can change and get a good display. This makes me think it is not a hardware problem.
I tried reinstalling windows XP. with no luck.
Finally, I installed Illustrator the day before this started happening. However, the problem did not start until the following day.
I guess I will try a new card, but I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas.
