i checked it and there was a bent pin. . .and then i switched my monitor with another one that i had and the problem was kinda gone.
now i can see some colors. .. but its still not completely back to original. there are still some problems with the color display. . and i think it has something to do with my settings.
for some reason, i can't switch my settings back to high color (16 bit) and its set on 256 colors no matter how many times i change it. any way to fix this?
This part sounds like a problem with the display adapter drivers. Right click on My Computer, choose Properties, then Device Manager, expand Display adapter and try reinstallling the drivers. First write down what it says the adapter is and post it here if that doesn't work, so we can tell what is happening.
