I have a Toshiba Satelite 4090XDVD Laptop
I just reformatted and installed Windows XP
when i try to play dvds or watch downloaded videos clips. the screen freezes and the colors are all messed up. most of the time it only shows videos in black & white.
It shows everything working properly in the Hardware Device Manger.
but i did notice in my Display Settings the color quality only goes up to Medium (16 Bit)
When I try to change it to Highest (32 bit) the screen resolution gets smaller not filling up the whole laptop screen space. But at both screen settings, playing videos still mess up.

Here are the specs

You need to install the video chipset drivers for your particular laptop.  There should be a CD that came with the laptop that has these drivers on it.  The drivers in WinXP are generic and not accelerated, which is why you are seeing what you do.

That is the page for your laptop, but I don't see any display drivers for recent OS'es.  Perhaps you need to contact Toshiba about getting a CD?

No, it has to be the one for that motherboard, or it is unlikely to work.
