    Hello. It seems I've gotten myself into hot water again somehow with no idea how to fix it after surfing for answers for a while now. It's just too confusing for me to sort out all of the possible problems/solutions/situations/applicable possibilities...

    In short, due possibly to an incompatible game I was trying to play, my computer display went wonky. Now when I look at the display adaptor it lists VGA and not my GeForce card. As an example, I'm pasting my dxdiag from a couple of weeks ago (which shows my card) and my current dxdiag which shows the vga adaptor.

    I forgot to mention and am editing to say that there is a new bios message that flashes upon restarting computer but it is SO FAST I can't read a single word. I do know that prior to this evening no messages flashed upon rebooting.

    I'm either too tired or too ignorant to figure out what happened or how to fix it. :D

    Any assistance would be appreciated!

    System:
    Windows Vista Home Premium (6.0, Build 6000); HP Pavillion m9100t; Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3 GHz; 2.47 GB Ram; 32-bit OS; NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT; DirectX 10


    Thanks~
