I need help if my username means anything. Recently I installed a game called "Age of Empires" from a disk that came promotional out of an Old kellogs cereal box about 15 to 20 years ago. My computer worked fine during gameplay and afterwards in a different game called Dragons Dogma through "Steam". I shutdown my computer and the next day everything was wrong. Text on the desktop, on the Internet, and even in games (if they run mind you) was slightly off. This change also affected images to the same extent, everything has slight edges and was no longer smooth. This change also killed my monitors sound. All my volume options are greyed out with a red downwards arrow beside the icon and the system constantly tells me no speakers or headphones are plugged in, despite the monitor having its own speakers. My games mostly those with high graphics requirements now run slow. From start up to gameplay the lag is intense and painful. I've tried to find solutions to fix this problem but so far nothing has helped nor have I found anything I could understand. I have already uninstalled Age of Empires and the problem remains. Please help or post a link to a sight you believe could help me, it's why it's why I'm here.
