Default Graphics Need Help

Okay, well I recently deleted my whole hard drive, due to I had a virus and my xp disc was scratched and system restore was working.... So I came to a last resort and decided to use windows 2000. Some of you maybe going I'm on vista.... But ya the graphics on this computer are all pixely and such. Is there a way I can get normal graphics? I will post some screen shots of what I'm talking about.

Edit: Its an eMachine


Please Help
--Juan

I doubt that the Display drivers are not installed properly
OR
The Second thing is that you have not selected the proper resolutions under the Display Properties

It definitely sounds like you need to install the graphics drivers. if this is a prebuilt machine such as a Dell or Compaq, you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the needed drivers.
