Question Display Problem [Colors look bad]

Hello, I'm using DSL 2.4. And everything is working fine except for that the display looks bad, the colors look like if they were 16 or 8 bit. I chose 32 bit and I still get the low quality graphics. I'll post a screenshot as soon as I figure out how to take one on DSL lol...

I tried using different size modes and the problem still presists. I believe this is probably a video card config. issue, but I don't know how to fix it. I'll post my video card model when I'm on my pc (on a diff pc atm) it's an Intel video card.

When you say the colors "look bad" does it look like the colors are "off",.. like a color is missing ??

... If so then you need to change the video mode ..
Go to ttahhe console and type "" and select the video mode other than vesa (i think its Fdevb or somthing like that..

If you mean the icons have just a very low quality look to them then I'm sorry I couldn't be more help...

Let us know how it turns out ... later

Thanks for the help, I'll try that but I think it's because of my Intel Video Card. Because on my other PC that has an intel graphics card, I have the same problem. I'll probably have to recompile it to intergrate the intel driver on the live CD.
