I have this project to do and I want to use coloured text and some simple shapes, etc. But the problem is that my compiler does not support graphics.h or dos.h. Even my tclite doesn't (I usually use BC5 windows version). Is there any way of correcting this problem? Or maybe another version which does support?

yaa you an do that but it will be unncessary burden for you
i'll suggest you to go for turbo c++ compiler in case you want use graphics
it fully supports it

Gooog. Don't recommend that compiler. Go and get a graphics lib like SDL or Allegro you can draw shapes with them.

I agree with prog-bman! SDL is free and used a lot for games. For a short code snippet and how to download SDL take a look at:
