My computer is only 16 color, which means its almost only black and white with a few extra colors like blue, red and yellow. It won't allow me to see pictures properly and my computer also won't allow us to open extra windows.

I want to know how to fix this before my brother comes back. My mother is getting him to fix the computer and he has made it worst the last five times he tried to fix it.

Its a Windows Mellenium computer.

Someone please help me :tazz:

No, I think its an onboard. I was gone for the weekened, so I really have no idea what he did to it. He may have installed something. I'm sorry I don't have all the information about it, I'm just trying to fix it before he comes home and ruines it even more.

I would like you to download and install a program called Everest

Run it and then copy and paste anything that references Video or graphics in this thread..

And what happens if they aren't using a Giga-Byte motherboard or didn't you consider that??

Lanna: Use Everest so we get the right one!!

Another problem with my computer is that I can't click on links unless I can copy and past them. My computer won't allow me to open a new page, it'll just say 'Page Cannot Be Found.'

Can you please post the link?
