Thumbs down

Thats impossible.
Do you really understand how to install and use a video card ?
Without the drivers you would only get 16 colors or 256 at best[1990],follow your card directions and try again and don't mess around and expect a quick fix here.What was your point ?

uhh just a guess but to go start > right click my computer > go to properties > device manager, find your graphics card, right click uninstall it, restard your computer and tap f1 and enter in safe mode, install your graphics card and it should be fixed, if that fails wear sunglasses

But yes it shouldn't come to this if it was done as it should.

You have set your resolution to a point your moniter won't support. Boot into safe mode then reset your video to a lower setting. your refresh rate is probably set to high. To get into safe mode hit the f8 key as the computer starts to boot up. use the arrowws and the enter key to select safe mode

Thats cause you put the Resolution too high. Go onto Safe Mode on the Computer and hopefully you should be able to change the resolution back? Don't know; but its worth a try. Beyond that I have no idea. It shouldn't change unless you specifically press to change it after it had been changed (the little timer comes up). Safe Mode is F8.

Was that three Posts back to back Bluto?
