Easy to fix. Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config... Go to "Section Screen" portion of the
file and find the description matching your equipment. Add the following line:

DefaultColorDepth 16

The new line will force a startup in 16 bit (65536 colors). You may want to
re-arrange the "Modes" line to put the most used resolution up front. Like
this...   Modes  "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"     instead of
          Modes  "640x480" "800x600" "1024x768"
