Yeah, 16Bit does that... try switching it to 24Bit or 32Bit :)

//Edit...what I mean is nOObs are going to get a "hotlink error" unless they copy and paste the link into their browser and open it directly.

I think in 16Bit, Windows defaults back to 16 colour icons... 24Bit is full colour.. 32Bit is full colour with transparency.

I think he means, when he is playing games in 16bit. And them jumping back to windows.
But I don't know how to fix it (sorry) or wait :P "Format c:"

a 64Meg Radeon 9000 should be be EASILY able to handle 1024x768x32Bit...

I've got a 64Meg Radeon 8500 dual head and a 64Meg Radeon 7500 dual head both in the same machine (4 total monitors), and I've got all four monitors running in 1600x1200x32Bit.
