Computer stuck on Windows 7 Basic Colors

Hi i have a fairly new laptop with windows 7 (i can't remember which version), and i was wondering how to change the colors, if that makes sense. The laptop came installed with some default color scheme which i liked, but when i tried to watch a movie with Windows Media center it changed it to "windows 7 basic". it does this every time i use the program, but until now it has all ways automatically changed back. any advice would be appreciated.

Can we get your system specs so we know what hardware you have?
