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!!
