I cannot change the resolution of my screen. Whenever I click on the "settings" tab, the screen goes blue and an error message - Fatal exception 06 error has occured at B000-00004058 -appears. The message then goes on to say press any key to continue or press Ctrl Alt Del to restart. I'm stuck at 640x480 16 color. Please help. Thanks.

what did you do before getting this?, why are you changing screen res? new drivers, card?
new install of windows?

might be a conflict with mcafee or norton according to this article
or could be one of these ones , look through and see if any ring a bell with your setup

Right click on My Computer>Properties>Device manager. Double left click on display adapters and double click on your video card. See if everything is OK – it will tell you if all is well and the drivers are loaded.

It sounds like you need to reinstall the drivers for the video card or the video card is bad. What you are getting is video from the basic Windows VGA which is 16 colors and 640 X 480.

What kind of computer do you have and does it have a quick restore? Or do you have the video driver on a separate CD?
