Good evening gentlemen, it seems I have run into yet another spot of trouble in this computing world of ours.
For some reason, unknown to me, many interactions I have with steam cause the color quality on my screen to suddenly drop, from 32 bit to 8 bit.
This occurs whenever I start steam, or begin a game.
When beginning a game it changes only until the game starts, and which point it rights it self to 32.
When starting steam however, it stays at 8 until I set it otherwise.
This has become quite annoying since with a new game I recently purchased (Sam & Max 301:The Penal Zone) you can not begin the game unless your color quality is 32 bit, thus when I start it and it suddenly changes to 8 bit, the game start up crashes.
If you have any ideas about this I would be ever so thankful.
For the record, still running XP, but have purchased a new video card, its a Nvidia 250, and I have updated drivers.
