  1. A little while ago my computer decided to start up in 16 colours and in 640x480 resolution. Whenever I try to change it back it says it has to restart before the new settings can take place, but when it restarts its exactly the same.Ive tried clicking the "apply new color settings withiout restarting" tab in advanced display properties but it makes no difference whatsoever.Ive got windows ME.Can anyone help?

    Try changing one thing at a time. Change the colors to 16-bit then restart. upon reboot, change the resolution & if it asks, reboot again. That should work unless you're constantly rebooting in safe mode.
