After the reinstall your pc reverted back to the standard VGA video driver that has limited color. To get the color resolutions back, you simply need to 'reinstall' the video adapter driver. If you have the restoration CD that shipped with the Gateway the drivers are on it. If not you can download the drivers the the video adapter's Web site.
