Custom built XP home computer using ASUS A8n VM CSM Mboard; above monitor, 4 weeks old, worked to perfection until a week or more ago. Suddenly on cold or warm boots the desktop pops up as expected then screen goes dark for a second then pops up at 8 bit color quality instead of 32 bit as when first used. I wouldn't be surprised if I did something somewhere to alter this but I am not ready to take full blame yet. I right click on blank desktop space, click on NVIDIA DISPLAY which leads to ViewSonic VG2021m which leads to NVIDIA GForce 6150 wherein I can change color quality box to 8, 16 or 32 bit. It shows 8bit but changing to 32 bit then clicking on Apply button first then OK to close box the next time I am back to 8 bit again. Following Viewsonic's on screen setup shows nothing, the internet help site for ViewSonic shows nothing, e-mails to ViewSonic are lost in space yada, yada yada. Frustrating at best, PITA at worst. Any ideas? Anyone still following this at this point? Thanx in advance for whatever suggestions are forthcoming. fairwood
