To BabyFace, Pls advise the result of checking:
(1)Control Panal-Display icon-Appearance Tab- click on the menu bar of Active window - there should be two boxes of color setting for you to pick different designated colour Blue-Baby Blue or Dark Green-weed Green Gradient Fill. Does it show that as being normal.   Pslh

Gradient bars are only available in 16-bit color or higher.  If you reduced your colors down to 256 or 16 colors, you will lose the bar.  Also, if you think it is lost, go to the Display | Appearance tab and click on the Window bar in the sample lay out.  See if Color 1 and Color 2 are the same.  If they are, make one of them different, and the color will come back.
