Default Screen resolution and colour settings

My laptop will not go beyond 16 bit colour when it is at its native reolution of 1400 x 1050, I do have the most up to date drivers for it. Is there a way to force the laptop to use better colour settings at this resolution? Thanks

It looks like your pretty much stuck at that color setting at that resolution.
