    A lot depends upon your graphics card and OS as to how to regain the
    screen colours.

    Mine only goes to 32 bit. Must be Win 98 and an older video card where they
    had 16 and 256 colors along with 16 and 32 bit. I agree he has to refresh
    the driver.

    He'll need the special color depth extender. That's another $284,000.
