I ordered windows vista home premium 64 bit off of newegg and installed it on my new computer. The disc says my operating system is 64 bit and the system is saying its windows vista 64 bit, yet I can't run 64 bit colors, can anyone help me?

What video card are you using that will do 64 bit color? A FireGL or something like that? On most every system 32 bit color is still the max, even if you have a 64 bit OS. I hope you are not confusing color depth and 64 bit processing. Just because you have a 64 bit system does not mean you will necessarily get 64 bit color. I'm not sure about 64 bit color, as far as I know it is very rare, maybe it does require a 64 bit OS and computer, that would seem to make sense. Could you clarify your situation? Thanks.

Have you installed the proper Vista 64 driver for the specific video card not mentioned. That driver will be needed for proper configuration and function with the 64 bit OS.

No such things as "64 bit colors" on consumer machines.
