      You need to download the drivers for the video card in your computer. Find out what video card you have, go to the website for that manufacturer, and get the drivers for your video card model and OS type.
      Install the drivers, reboot, and there you go!

      Depending on what version of Windows, and your hardware, you will need up to 4 drivers to get your color options back.

      First, check with the video card manufacture and verify which version of DirectX is supported / required for their driver.

      Then, install drivers in the following order:

      Chip-set / system drivers for the motherboard.
      Make sure to install the AGP mini-port driver.

      DirectX (from Microsoft) Do NOT install a newer version of DirectX than is supported by the video driver.

      The video card driver.

      If needed, the driver for your specific monitor.
