Looking for obvious or creative way to run OS in monochrome (black/white)

Q: Looking for obvious or creative way to run OS in monochrome (black/white)

I am looking for a method to run my system in black and white; not all the time, but only during certain circumstances (i.e. when focusing on writing or dedicated reading). Is there any way of doing this on a computer running Windows XP that does not require any programming knowledge or implementation of difficult solutions? Any solution that requires significant extra memory usage or WinXP visual themes probably isn't going to cut it. I'm looking for a way to do this that converts my entire user interface to monochrome temporarily. Is this possible or is it just an anachronistic pipe dream?

I am using a Dell Latitude D400 laptop running WinXP Pro SP2, with Integrated Intel Graphics.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello shoeshinesally and welcome to TSF !

Depending on your video drivers you may be able to play with some color saturation settings in the advanced display properties, but I don't think you'll have much luck with an integrated intel video.

You may find something that suits you in the high contrast modes in the accessibility options :
http://www.microsoft.com/enable/trai...hcontrast.aspx
Click settings to access different color schemes.

Or some shell replacement utility could have a black & white color scheme. Be careful when installing one of these, make sure you've got the right one because they can be a pain to remove.

On a Windows 2000 desktop, all of the shortcuts (have the little arrow in their corners) have grey shortcut boxes with black arrows rather than the white box with black arrows like is normal. The icons themselves are fine, its the Shortcut part that is wrong.

At boot up the Windows logo has a lot of horizontal lines in the image; the Windows 2000 image on the side of the Start menu also has a lot of lines in it.

Spybot removed 32 items which fixed some of the issues (like the covered min/max/close buttons which we had) but not everything. Has anyone seen these issues? Any fix ideas? I'll run HiJack This next time I connect but I'd like a few more options to try before spending time on this issue...

Bit of a long story but here I go.

I have 2 Radeon 6950 with the crossfire thing set up, it's been working well for over 2 years.

Over the last few weeks I've been having issues, mostly while watching videos (usually HD and/or full screen). The video will freeze, the audio will loop, then eventually the screen goes black and I get an error message saying "Display driver has stopped working and has recovered".
Sometimes it didn't recover and I have to turn the computer off.

What's now happening is it will freeze at the windows start up. Then after resetting I will get to windows in very very low resolution and in black and white.

So I 're-seated' the cards. I couldn't notice any obvious damage to it except the fans were very dusty so I cleaned them.
Boot it up and I still get the black and white.
I checked the device manager and it said one of the cards was having problems, I uninstalled both drivers from that menu (not quite sure if I should have done this) and for whatever reason it's now working.

However it now seems one of my cards is not being recognised. Only one display adapter is shown in the device manager and AMD catalyst only recognises one card too.

What's the best course of action to determine what's wrong with what card (still not quite sure which one it is).

Dear all,

I am not sure whether this is the right forum for my question. Excuse me if not.

Anyway, my question is - is it possible to change the whole Windows XP interface from color to monochrome on a "regular" laptop computer? If yes, then how? In the old days, it was possible to do it under the display settings if I remember correctly; but now in my present computer, there are only two choices: 32 bit vs 16 bit.

Why would anyone want to do such a thing? Just because. There is no particular reason.

Brgds,

Hello,

I am on ,

Windows XP SP3 x86.
Dell 755 Core2Duo 2.00Ghz, 4GB RAM.

I have a PS3eye camera installed with latest Cl-Eye drivers installed. The camera is working and detected fine in all of the Webcam enabled applications.

I did install a second camera Creative Live Motion, with the intention of setting up a home survelliance system with AbelCam or WebcamXP Pro. I only installed the drivers from their website and not the application. Initially the camera seemed to work fine and I was able to add it as a second camera device in MSN and AbelCam.

However after just a couple of reboot and uses , the Creative Live Motion webcam shows no video output at all. The video window when it is selected is complete blank/black. As mentioned in troubleshooting advice I have tried installing/uninstalling the drivers numerous times. The camera motion controls are working fine, but the camera shows no video output on screen. I am pretty sure its not broken cause I installed is just yesterday. There are two camera inputs shown with its driver installed , the Creative Live Motion Cam and Creative Live Motion Cam (VFW). I am not exactly sure which one to choose but both of them are unable to output any video.

The PS3eye on the other hand continues to work fine. I have uninstalled all drivers/software of PS3eye, Creative Live Motion and Abelcam and will check it tomorrow to see if its alive again.

I`ve had a 2x 27" monitor setup ever since I got my laptop about a year ago. One monitor is connected via Displayport, the other one via VGA. I keep the lid of my W520 closed so I only use the two external monitors. Today I had my laptop unhooked from my workstation and now when I try to hook it back up again the screen that is connected via VGA shows up black and white.  Here is what I did while my my laptop was unhooked from the monitors:1) Took it to work as usual (it didnt drop or anything like that so I dont think it would`ve got physically damaged)2) Installed a new battery (just arrived today, Lenovo original) Here is what I tried to get the issue resolved:1) Update both integrated and Quadro 1000M drivers2) Switch monitors (the one that is connected via VGA is B&W always)3) Switched to a brand new VGA cable4) Restarted my PC multiple times5) Fiddled around with the settings under "Screen resolution"6) Checked VGA port - cosmetically it looks like it always has (no damage or anything like that)7) Switched back to old battery and tried everything again Please help me out! I would hate to have to take my computer to a hardware specialist because I am just out of warranty and I cant really afford professional servicing. Since I`m pretty sure nothing got physically damaged, what other software fixes could I try?  Thanks in advance!

Okay, so... I just hopped on the bandwagon of buying Black & White too, and took it home to my much abhored computer... and tried to run it... and it failed.

It said I needed a graphics card which had pixel shading capabilities of 1.1 or something.

Now, I'm definately not computer savvy... in fact, I shouldn't be allowed to mess around with the inner workings of a computer...

But I wanna play!

Any suggestions?

I don't know much about my computer specs, but I know my graphics card is an Intel Extreme Graphics 3D or something. It came standard with the stupid computer. By the by, my computer is an EMachines T2792 or something along those lines. Don't laugh, it was a gift. X_x;;

Can anyone help out?

You will need a standalone graphics card to play it. You have a motherboard-integrated one, which is useless to run any game (except Minesweeper and the like maybe =P). But seriously speaking, you will need a new graphics card. I see that your PC has an AGP x4 slot. Look to get an FX5500 or an FX5200. It will be more than enough to run Black & White. Get an AGP one though and not a PCI version, since both cards are available in these versions. They shouldn't cost more than $40-$50.

Is it a demanding game?

I don't know the exact cause for the problems you are having but I encountered the same issues trying to play B/W with a PNY geforce mx440 card on my old system running w/me. I had played this game using an ATI expert pro 16mb card with no problems other than it would slow down after awhile and get very choppy. I tried the gforce card and although other games would play black and white would not. I couldn't see any improvement over the old ATI 16mb card. I then noticed that on the box the gforce card came in it stated that I needed to have at least a 250 watt power supply. My hp computer had only a 125 watt power supply so I returned the gforce card and exchanged it for a ATI radeon 7500 64mb card and all games played perfectly. You may have already done this but did you remove the voodoo drivers before installing the gforce card?

Hi Guys!

I have kind of a huge problem, atl least in my eyes; since i cant seem to fix it.
I have a cable going between my tv and graphic card so i can watch the movies on the tv instead on my stupid 19 inch lcd computer screen.
And it has been working out great until now that is. You see all of a sudden the tv went black and white. the lcd is normal and i just cant figure out how to fix it. ive tried reinstalling the drivers, taking out the graphic card (geforce 7600) and putting it back in, ive tried a different cable and it still wont work. my friend who is a bit of a computer wizzz tried to fix it but was boggled.

So now i ask you the brain bunch out there to please help fix this problem.

Hi, I have successfully installed and used VirtualDrive 6.2 on my computer, but am having problems creating a usable image file of the game Black and White.

I think it is probably down to copy protection. Even when the image file is in the 'drive', Black and White still asks for the CD to be inserted.

Any comments?

I've only recently got my PS3, I put in a blu-ray movie and several others and it's coming up black and white? It is a non-HDTV I have at the moment, but I was sure it was still possible.

Some clarification would settle this for me, thanks.

Hi. Last 6 days I am trying to connect my laptop to TV using s-video cable (7 pins).
I do get the picture, but it displays like White and Black only, I tried to change from NTSC to PAL (I am from europe) and yet doesn't works.
What may be the problem? Cable ain't because it works from my other PC.

Laptop specifications:

Toshiba Satellite A205 S4577

Intel Core 2 Duo (Centrino), 1.75 GHZ
HDD 160 Hitachi
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (945 express family chipset) 1280x800 px
1 GB of RAM (Samsung)
Help Appreciated.
