Your video card may be developing mix signals, maybe by connection prblems.

Shutdown thee PC and remove the video card and re-attach.

If possible, change the slot (that depends on the motherboard)

Also, you also look into the properties of your setting tab.

Click on the tab advance.

Double check your set up, you may have to change.

Also 256 colors may require more bits and you may have to upgrade your video card.

You may want to check up on WIN Media.
