thanks Pete, but i think I already have the answer thanks to Fou-Lu. Is to set the card to R5G5B5A1.
I set my desktop resolution to 1024x768x16 all the time.
But thanks anyway.

PS: the weid problem is, this never happens in Win9x/ME. I recently just installed Win2K. So I still never knew what else I could find in this new system ;)
