icons that change colors

By quintar51 ·
i'm running windows 2000 pro right now and i have a nvidia geforce mx2 graphics card.

i'm running at 32-bit graphics but one day when i turned on the machine, my icons show up as 16 colors. This includes icons everywhere (start menu, explorer,desktop). however, everything else, like wallpaper, internet, games, all runs at 32-bit color. I tried the last known good config but that didn't help. This also happened to me before and i have no idea why or how to fix it. I scanned my pc forviruses, it's clean.

any suggestions?????

Try to change/upgrade your video driver or play with the video settings.

Go out to the nvidia site and download the latest detonator driver for win2k.
This helped me a great deal.

I had this problem a couple of weeks ago with my machine also, I reinstalled the nvidia driver and then went to there website and downloaded an upgrade. I've been fine since. I'm not sure if reinstalling it fixed it or doing both fixed it. I'd reinstall first and if you still get into problems, upgrade.

Sometimes the video settings get mixed up. It happened alot with PLUS and WIN98SE. Change your Appearence in Display properties and under the effects tab uncheck or recheck the option to SHOW ICONS USING ALL POSSIBLE COLORS.

By changing and thenputting it back to what you like resets the screwed up settings.

All Fixed!
