Click on your background, properties, appearance and settings, and then change whatever you need. Hit apply and you should be good.

i had the same issue when i installed Vista after just finishing my build.
Since it was my first time building a computer, i made a mistake of plugging the wrong cord from the power supply to my gpu. Essentially after installing the drivers the card wasn't getting enough power, forcing it to display 4bit colors. All i had to do was plug the right power cord into the GPU.
It probably won't solve your issue but it did for me.
