I can't fix my screen resolution and color quality

Question Posted Saturday March 29 2008, 11:36 pm

Well days ago my dad shut off the power to fix something. He shut off the power while the computer was on. After that I turned my computer on and everything was like messed up. I tried to fix my screen resolution, but the slider won't move! It's stuck on 800x600 or something. I the color was also really bad and I tried to fix it, but the only option is "low". The color is really ugly and I can't see stuff like pics on the computer correctly and I can't see the real color and it sucks. So how can I fix this??!! Thanks SO much!!!

sounds like the computer is in safe mode. shut it down normally, and boot it up again, if it does the same thing, shut it down again, and turn it on after at least a minute, then start tapping F8 as it is turning on, you will eventually see a menu on how to boot, one of the options is safe mode, one is normal, choose normal and it should work.

oh woops, didnt read the entire answer of the last person, and just thought they only mentioned a graphics card problem

sounds to me like a graphics card problem or monitor.
depending on the monitor your using either a tft or a cathode monitor usually cathode monitors can get mixed up within the setting so make sure you have the proper monitor selected within resolutions also make sure you have selected the right graphics card incase you have an onboard graphics card. also your computor could be booting from safe mode within the bios when your turning on your computor next time tap f8 as many times as you can until the bios comes up and then click on the boot options click on start windows normally this will make sure its not botting from safe mode. hope i helped if this doesnt help my asvice is do a restore if that fails get your pc checked out.
