Hi... my display settings seem to be outta wack after my brother used the comp last night. It's set at 640x480 and when I try to change it back to 1024x768 and restart, I get the message...

"There is a problem with your display settings. The adapter type is incorrect, or the current settings do not work with your hardware."

I've tried unplugging the monitor, deleting the adapter and reconfiguring, and even tried hooking up my old monitor. All to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Reinstall the videocard drivers. You should download the latest version.

What is the step by step process for doing this? (If you don't mind)

Thanks!

It depends what kind of videocard you have. Since you're computer illiterate....

1. Goto Start and click on Control Panel.

2. Click "Performance And Matinence" and then click "See basic information about this computer". Or, if "Performance and Matinence" doesn't show up, then just click "System".

3. Click on the "Hardware" tab.

4. Click on the "Device Manager" button.

5. Click the plus sign next to "Display Adaptors".

Tell us what you see.

Cheers,

Roger
