Specs: Microsoft Windows 7, 512 MB ram
I tried to run magix movie editing pro 14 in 256 colors, because I got an error message saying screen needs to be at least 789X1026. I UNPLUGED the computer in the middle of the process, and now when I turn on the computer, it is stuck in 256 colors!!! PLZ HELP! NOTE: I have Windows 7 enterprise 90 day-trial 32-bit.

To my knowledge there is no 789 x 1026 resolution. You must have that all wrong.

To change the resolution in Windows 7 you can right click on a blank part of the desktop and you should see a menu that includes "change resolution.

Your resolution is going to be something with the larger number first. Like 1024 x 768.

If you have any problems accessing that, you may need to update your video drivers to Windows 7 if your machine did not originally come with any version of Windows 7.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
