Display switch is set incorrectly
Explanation: Some older PCs have a switch on the motherboard that can be toggled between "monochrome" and "color", instead of having a BIOS setting to control display type. The system has detected a mismatch between this setting and the video card it is seeing in the PC.
Diagnosis: The display switch is set incorrectly, there is a video card problem, or there is a motherboard problem.
