Problem with Bit colour and Resolution

Today I installed windows 7 ,when the installation started I noticed the colour bit was very low and the resolution low aswell and after the installation, the colours were all messed up and the images were too big and and the resolution was 800 x 600 and somehow i cannot change it, I tried installing the graphic drivers but still not worked, did anyone experienced or is experiencing the same problem? I leave a screenshot. (I am using an Nvidia Geforce 8400 Gs)



By the way , nevermind the site I just used a black background for you guys to see what i'm talking about.
