I have a Gateway Pentium 4 with a 15" flat screen monitor running on Windows
XP Home 2002, SP 2. At start up my computer loads fine however screen
momentarily goes black and comes back with screen res. changed from 32 bit to
8 bit. I then have to manually change back to 32 bit everytime I start up!
Not sure what caused this change to occur. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Have you tried to APPLY the settings? (you have 15 seconds to change it). What video card are you using? Is it on-board or external (AGP/PCI etc).

Go to My Computer icon, right mouse click, properties, Hardware tab, device Mangager, display adapters. (or in Control panel, Appearance & themes, display, settings) Even older video cards should allow 1024x768 @ 32bit and 60Hz.
