you have lost or corrupted your display driver. go to device settings and right click on your graphics card and update the driver.How do u change the color settings on windows?
your settings are at the default minimum and minimum resolution.
right click your desktop, go to properties, then settings.
Adjust to your comfort
Click on the ';Start'; button in the lower left corner of your screen. Slide your cursor up to the ';Control Panel'; option. In the new window that opens, double-click on the ';Display'; icon.
Note: If you are using Windows 2000, click on the ';Start'; button, then slide your cursor up to the ';Settings'; option to choose ';Display.'; If you don't have this option, click on ';Control Panel,'; and once the window opens, double-click on the ';Display'; icon.
When the ';Display Properties'; window opens, click on the ';Settings'; tab.
Note: For a shortcut to bypass the steps outlined in #1, right-click directly onto your desktop (with no program windows open) and choose ';Properties'; from the drop-down menu. This will also open the ';Display Properties'; window.
In the bottom half of the window, you will see a ';Colors'; or ';Color quality'; area, which displays your current color setting [e.g. ';256 Colors'; or ';High Color (16bit)';].
Select ';True Color (32 bit)'; from the drop-down menu. Click on the ';Apply'; button, and then ';OK'; to exit the window.
Most likely, the default color setting on your Mac will be sufficient to view ARTstor images, but if you need to change this setting, use the following instructions:
Go to the Apple menu, then select the ';System Preferences...'; option.
Click on the ';Displays'; option, then click on the ';Display'; tab.
Select the desired color setting, e.g. ';Millions';, from the drop-down menu in the right-hand side of the window.
Right click desktop and select color managment
Go to controll panel and go to color management in classic view
something has gone very wrong with your graphics card. Chances are something's happened to the driver which can be configured in the same window as the resolutation as you've described.
There's also another chance that the memory on your computer as cheaper graphics cards share the computer's RAM
go to Control Panel
on Win 2000 or XP, find Display and find the color controls
on Vista (and probably 7) find Personalization, and pick the top entry
