How can I change the color depth?

I'm running 11.10 and Intel HD 3000 graphics, if it helps. I've looked at previously posted solutions and tested each. None have worked so far.

My laptop has both Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed, and one day I shut down Windows 7 in a lower graphics setting because I was saving power throughout the day. I booted right into Ubuntu and noticed that the colors were no longer as smooth on the desktop background. I suspect it's just an issue with color depth. Also, I don't understand why this change occurred after I changed something in the Windows 7 OS. Anyone know?
