View Full Version : All screens patchy/screensaver and internet

We tried to download a digital camera disc.

Once we used up all the photos we plugged in.

an error flashed across the screen 'colour error must have 265 or 256.

so I changed the screensaver to a high colour type and uninstalled the digital camera but the screen quality is still the same very patchy and pixels are quite distnct.

Sounds more like it is trying to tell you to change the screen res itself rather than the screen saver.

Try this

Right click on the desktop > select properties > click on the Settings Tab, go down to where it says Colours and click the downward arrow and from the menu select 256. You might also like to adjust the slider bar under Screen Area, same location to something like 600x800.

Of course, if the video card drivers have not been installed you will not be any better off until they have been installed as well.
