Please be more specific:
What kind of OS do you have?
What kind of video board? How much video memory?
Have you done any recent system upgrades?

In Win95:
Click on:
1. START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL.
2. Open DISPLAY.
3. Click on the SETTINGS TAB.
4. Now select the "256 Colors" from the "Color Palette" section.

varun - Isn't that kind of a shot in the dark?  You probably would first want to find out a little more information about what you're dealing with here.
