HELP Wierd Colours!

I installed windows 7 on my machine yesterday and it worked great. Today when i turned it on it booted normally but once it reaches the desktop the colours go inverted andd very washed out. If i change from 32 bit to 16 bit it flashed normally for a second and then goes back. Same thing going 16 to 32.
Is my hardware just too weak? (Its a 3 year old laptop)
Please Help!!

Username colours
I thought i'd ask a silly question....Hence the 'Chillout Zone' :p I've notice that a lot of people have a username colour that matches their status (e.g. Power User = Purple, Admin = Red). There are 2 colours that confuse me at the minute and that's Yellow & Black. Is it user changed or...
