After reinstalling windows I have discovered that the only colours that is on the color palette in the display properties is either monochrome or 16, how do I get the old values like 24 bit colour or true colour back?

To get the 24bit or true colour back you'll need to reload your display card's driver, usually on a CD. If you don't have a CD you could try this method (if you know the right driver name!)

Right click on My Computer and select Properties
click the Devices tab, and click the + next to Display.
double click on the display card listed, click the Drivers tab, and click Update Driver.
Either get windows to search for a new driver, or choose to select one youself, and browse for the correct display driver for your display card.

The likely scenario is windows either hasn't detected ur monitor and just installed a basic vga driver or you havn't installed your video card drivers.

Firstly search for your monitor in the windows list or use a disk if you have one to update and/or install appropriate video card driver.
