First try resetting the video. right click in a blank area on the desktop and click Properties Then click the Settings tab. It should have a bar halfway down with 16 color showing. Click the down arrow at right and see if any other colors are available. If not, download and install new video drivers from WinDrivers (http://www.windrivers.com) or WinFiles (http://www.winfiles.com).

If that doesn't do it you might have to remove the video card from Device Manager in Safe Mode, reboot and reinstall it. If you do that, remove ALL video cards shown.
