Windows 7: 64-bit worked before System Recovery

23 Oct 2010   #11

Windows7 Ultimate 64bit

OMG, no one realized yet...

What LeykisMinion meant was the color depth. LeykisMinion, there is no 64bit color depth. If you have it prior restoring, I can assure you 999999% that your memory is messing with you.

The highest color depth a monitor can display today is 40bit (10bit for each RGB channels, and 10bit for alpha channel). To have 40bit color depth, you need a compatible display adapter (read: expensive, Nvidia Quadro family supports 40bit output to display port ONLY, DVI will limits at 32bit) and a compatible monitor (read: super expensive, any of pro-class display from NEC or LaCie that costs $1200++) and you need to use display port as display connection (read: expensive display port cable).

In the end, there is no 64bit color depth in any consumer class display/display adapter today. Your memory is messing with you...

As for 64bit processor and 64bit Windows, that is another context to color depth. Color depth doesn't depend on your processor's instruction architecture nor your OS's kernel processor architecture compatibility (it doesn't have anything to do with the bit-ness of either processor/OS).

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Rocker: Thanks for you time and effort. I don't know what happened, but now it's operating up to par. I think something automatically updated, but it's back to normal.

zzz: All I know is that the display went from one color setting to the next and wouldn't display how I wanted it to. Perhaps you can understand my, and everyone else's assumption that a 64-bit OS might also have a 64-bit color scheme - but thank you for the enlightening information. I feel like a better person with the knowledge you have bestowed upon myself, and all of these other selfless people that were just trying to help me out. Somehow I feel that the world is a better place with you in it. (man I wish there was a sarcasm font).

To everyone else trying to help: Thank you all for your hard work and taking the time out of your day to help an ignorant student of life.
