Did you install a new OS? Go to display/settings, under colors, change it to whatever your like.

thanks parvus, tried that but now it only gives me two options 2 or 16 bit colour. when i switch the computer on it says a file PNCRT.DLL is missing, could this affect the monitor? thanks.

You didn't mention what version of windows you are using.

Try reinstalling your video drivers and Direct X.

PNCRT.DLL sure sounds like a CRT (monitor) related file. Don't know if that's causing your problem.

If your operating system is win98 or higher you can run MSINFO32 then choose file checker from the tools menu to see if it finds that the missing DLL is a system file. If so it will prompt you to restore the file from the win98 disk if the cab files are not on the hard drive, usually "C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS" if not have your win98 CD handy.

I searched my drive (Win ME) and it wasn't there so it may be part of your video driver or Direct X.

Good luck

The following registry key is more than likely where the DLL is loaded and the error is coming from. Run regedit and go to this key. It should be there. There will be a bunch of DLL's mentioned on the right side. You can remove the line on that calls up this file. Note if you're not sure on how to edit the registry then don't try it without backing up the registry first.


Here's the key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SharedDLLs\

You didn't mention if youreinstalled your video drivers.

If you need more info email me at

Sounds to me that all you have to do is reinstall your display adapter for your video card.
In display settings and settings tab then click on advance and click the tab that says adapter and click change so that you can put back the right driver for your video card in. As this will give you more than 2 choices for color when you have the right driver installed.

Good luck.

if your video card is built in with your system board, try to check your CMOS, and check if your video adapter is enabled.
