Welcome to G2G:

What Monitor are you using? Have you tried changing it back to 16 bit or 32 bit? Some older computers can't run a good resolution and good color scheme at the same time. Please list your system specs.

im using a monitor i got with the computer, it doesn't say which one becuase the computer says it is just a default monitor, and i can't change the setting on to anything but 16 bit, my computer is fairly new, 2 or 3 years at the most, when i altar the screen modes it only show 8-bit or 16-bit?!

Right, you don't have 32-bit. Try changing it to 16-bit and your desired screen resolution. Apply the new settings and see what happens.
