    Go to the control panel and select the "display" icon. Select the settings tab.
    Change the color setting down near the bottom, on mine I have it set to "True color, 32 bit"...click "Apply".

    Is anyone else having this problem lately? I turned my puter on and it was all fizucked up. Several hrs later its 99% normal but not totally.

    I just think its strange that 2 computers that frequent this site have the same strange problem in a matter of days.

    I AM NOT BLAMING CK5! Might be a link we went to or something?
