Unhappy Can't see red.

I've got a Dell Dimension 4600,gphx=Radeon 1600. I reformatted Windows for a nice clean slate, and now, I can't see any red. I downloaded/installed DX9, and I've also dled and installed my video card's drivers. Any ideas? Playing games is a pain in the ass when I can't see red.
