Installed SP2 Results In Getting Screen Resolution Of 4 Bit Color?

I just reformatted C:, and reinstalled XP Professional. Works like a charm, but every time I try to install SP2, I lose the screen resolution; it changes to a max of 4 bit color and 480 x xyz pixels as my only choice. I reloaded the monitor drivers for the hp pavilion f50 monitor, but that doesn't help. I finally loaded SP1, and that is fine, but I cant get SP2 to allow decent screen images... and SP3 had some other error when I tried to load it, and it wouldn't even try to install.

Installed SP2: Results In Corrupt Registry?
Initially the computer had a spyware infection. While cleaning it up I got a message telling me some windows files had been changed and i needed to insert the Windows XP CD to restore them. Didn't have CD handy at the time, so I installed SP2 hoping it would replace the corrupt files. Soon afterwards I got a message on reboot saying Windows had recovered from a corrupt registry. I was going to do a SFC /scannow, but at some point I was no longer able to boot into Windows.

Installed SP2 Results In Crashing Internet Explorer And Outlook Express?
I recently 'upgraded' the family computer (running XP pro) with SP2.we've had a number of problems with programs no longer working after the upgrade. More specifically, Internet Explorer, Outlook, Norton, and HP Precisionscan Pro 3.1 (to name a few) are causing us grief.Outlook will load, but as soon as you try and view a new message, the program crashes.Internet Explorer will open, but immediately closes before any page can load. (I've installed Firefox in the meantime, so I'm sure it's not the internet connection).

4-bit Color Won't Go To 32-bit ?
I was installing Service Pack 2, then it finished and I turned off my computer.
I turned the computer off, then back on when it was fully turned off.

The login screen is completely horrible. I don't know how to describe it.
Really low detail and resolution makes the window huge

4-bit Color won't go to 32-bit ?

Cannot Adjust Screen Resolution After Updating To SP2
I updated Windows XP to Service Pack 2 yesterday. After installing and re-booting, the screen resolution and the colours of my monitor have changed (big icons and only four colours), which makes it look like it was in Safe Mode (which it isn't).I have tried to change the screen resolution and the colours under Display properties - Settings, but it only gives me the option of a screen resolution of "640x480 pixels" (the slider won't move) and colour quality of "Lowest 4 bit".I presumed it was a driver issue so I have tried to uninstall the graphics controller in the device manager and re-install it with the latest driver.

Screen Resolution Set Too Low After SP2 Upgrade?
I just upgraded my Dell 4300 XP Home Edition to SP2. When it rebooted, the welcome screen was in blue and white instead of its usual color rich format and the background resolution was really poor quality.A window popped up and informed me that my settings were set too low and asked whether I wanted Windows to auto correct the problem. I clicked "yes", but nothing was resolved.

Installed Wireless Card: Unable To Change Screen Resolution?
I have a Compaq EVO D51S SFF which I had plugged to my LCD TV as a media centre, just to watch movies and all. I had not connected this computer to the internet because I did not have a wireless card.I finally installed a wireless card, and then windows started doing all sorts of updates as expected (since the version on the SFF was SP2).Once windows was done with the updates, I started having problems with the screen resolution.

The SFF does not have a stand alone video card, so I had set the resolution at 1024 x 768, and this worked just fine before the updates.Now, the resolution keeps changing and this is a problem because the LCD TV gives me a message saying "Resolution Not Supported", so I can't use the computer unless I connect it to a regular computer monitor, select 1024x768, and then connect to the TV. I connect via VGA port, not DVI (don't have DVI).

Color Quality Goes From 32 To 16 Bit
I have windows XP and there are a few things that are starting to get on my nerves. First, everytime I start the computer the Color Quality goes from 32 bit to 16 bit for no apparent reason. Second, my cat walked on my keyboard and now everytime I start up the computer the Magnifier comes up. Neither of these things get in the way of using anything. They're just annoying and I can't figure out how to fix them.

Finding The Installed Operating System Is 64 Bit Or 32 Bit?
I recently bought a Canon PowerShot SD430 Digital ELPH Wireless for use in my chiropractic practice. It will be used in posture evaluation and I selected it for the wireless feature. After unsuccessfully trying to install it on my samsung laptop R710 AS04 I was informed by canon help that 'Windows XP (excluding the 64-bit version) with Service Pack 2 installed is required to use the wireless function.' while the samsung came with Vista pre-installed.

My question is this: I still have an old CD of XP Home Edition, it is version 2002 with a part number do I know if this is the 64 or 32 bit version? Will I have problems installing SP2 on such an old version or should I pop for a newer one? I'm determined to make the danged camera work wirelessly, any other suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

Color Quality Only Upto 32 Bit In X64 XP?
I just upgraded to x64 version from 32 bit XP. But to my disappointment, the display properties only show up to 32 bit. Where is the 64 bit option? Here is the hardware I have: I had thought that while playing games, wherever there would be unmixed colors, they would now be mixed properly, like steam coming in dark areas in a game, or too many colors not fading into each other properly. But looks like I would need to do with the 32 bit only I guess.

4 Bit Resolution After Xp Pro Upgrade
I upgraded an emachines t2542 from xp home to pro. Now I can't fix the resoluyion past 4 bits. Did the advanced settings, but all that is listed is "default monitpr" with no option to click on 'properties'. Went into device manager and there is no 'display' tab. The only items with ???? on them are an audio and a 'vga' device. I tried to update driver for vga, but it says it cannot be found even though I have the HP 17vs disk in.

4 Bit Colors 800x600 Resolution
I had a virus (supposedly) that was ending my explorer.exe over and over again, and the process in the task manager that appeared to be doing so was IEXPLORE.EXE, I know thats IE, but I figured since IE is broken on my computer (go figure) and I have FireFox, why not attempt to delete IE, because every time I ended the process it would come back.So I went into safe mode, I went and deleted the whole IE program folder (stupid thinking) and went back into normal windows. What I saw scared me... I had 4 bit colors (which is what I'm on right now typing to you guys) and 800x600 resolution, and I can't put it any higher.

Can't Adjust Resolution Above 640x480, 4 Bit
I totally believe this is an OS problem based on the troubleshooting I've done, if the mods feel this would be better in another forum please move it.This is probably going to sound like an easy one, but it's got me stumped. Up until yesterday everything worked fine, until I unplugged my monitor in order to test another machine, when I plugged it back into my main machine I only had 640x480 graphics (this was at the login screen. When I logged in and went to video settings the only options I had were 640x480 and 800x600, but couldn't move the slider to 800x600. The only color quality available was 4 bit. I removed the display adaptor from device manager along with the monitor. On reboot everything looked normal (I had all resolution options available in settings), windows detected a vga controller, but not my actual card. I then installed my video card drivers, on reboot I was back to 640x480.

Installing Sp2 - No Background Color
I stared having this problem after installing SP2 on my compaq presario with Windows XP Home Edition. I'm using sbc yahoo dsl as my ISP, when i run the sbcyahoo program to log in, the window appears but it's all white, the text is there but no background color(background is usually light blue), and when my browser opens to the home page is the same thing, and to make things worse the text on the page is way too big. I use both browsers IE and SBCYAHOO and it's the same problem, I already tried to change browser settings on both but I have no changes at all, also I tried going into different websites and they all have no background colors.

I have problems if I try and run the display settings above 800x600. I was wondering if this would be fixed if I upgrade the firmware settings and if so where would I get these upgrades? Whenever I try and run it at a higher display setting all I get is a thing saying "Signal isnt compatible with this display setting".

Home SP2 Name Resolution Issue
I've got a frustrating problem with name resolution on a xp home sp2 box. When the box boots, it gets a dhcp address and name servers fine. I can do nslookups successfully. I can talk to any service I've tried on the internet using ip address, but I cannot do so using names. For example, nslookup gives me the expected result, telnet [google's ip] 80 gets me connected, but telnet 80 fails because it can't resolve the name.I've reset tcp/ip with netsh, I've reinstalled "Client for Microsoft Networks", I've rebooted many times and flushed DNS cache manually.
