Script or batch file to change from True Color 32 Bit to High Color 16 Bit?

Ok, I have a weird problem. Long in short, ATI 6950, Trixx, Overclock, screen flickers, need to change from 32 bit color to 16 bit color and back to 32 bit color to stop flickering.

Apparently it's a bug or quirk with the ATI software and overclocking them.

So what I am looking for is a simple script I can have run on start up that will change the color settings and then back to 32 bit so I don't have to do it manually every time I log on.

Is that possible? Unfortunately I have no idea how to go about making a change like that through a script.

I think this software should be able to do what you want:
http://12noon.com/wordpress/?page_id=80

Direct link: http://12noon.com/files/dc-setup.exe

You could write a simple startup batch file to change the display color depth.

So, after the installation, you could run the following script (if you have a 32-bit system change the "Program Files (x86)" folder, to simply "Program Files"). If you have a 64-bit system, you can install the 64-bit version and then change "dc" to "dc64". If you run either file from the command line, it will give you a list of options.

@echo off
echo.
echo Changing color depths. Please stand by...
echo.
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\12noon Display Changer"
dc.exe -depth=16
dc.exe -depth=max
cd\
echo.
echo Done.

Open in new window

Save it as color.bat or similar and put it in a folder and add the shortcut to the script to your Startup folder within All Programs.
