    Okay, so I accidentally pressed CTRL+ALT+Down Arrow & my screen resolution went crazy! So I turned the resolution back, but then all of a sudden, I'm getting this error message:


    I have no idea what happened, one moment it was fine and then this! And then, when my screensaver came on, it now says:

    "The screensaver can't run because it requires a newer video card or one that's compatible with Direct3D".

    What in the world happened? I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, running Windows Vista Home Premium. Please help, I have no idea what caused this! :-(
