Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My monitor's resolution changed overnight and everything is ginormous and off-color, and I can't change the resolution through the control panel and I've already tried system restore. What else can I do?


Answers :

Sounds like you may have had a bad system update overnight. Try going to the device manager through the control panel. IN XP you get to through System and then the hardware tab....anyway, find the graphics adapter and try to roll back the driver to the previous one. This may clear up the settings issue and allow to make changes. If that doesn't work, try uninstalling the graphics adapter and reboot. This will force windows to recognize the hardware on reboot and load fresh drivers for it.
