Hi,

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.

Thanks,

Mark

Try reinstalling your video driver.

What could you change it to in safe mode? You should only be able to change it to 16 colors.

:D

I reinstalled a couple of times and it didn't work, but then I deleted the old drivers and reinstalled and it did fix the problem.
Thanks for the help.
