    No matter how many times I try and change the appearence settings they change back.
    My display shrunk to the smallest size and lowest appearence and colour settings. When I change it a blue screen pops up and I don't have time to read it, then the computer shuts down.
    In safe mode I can change them back to normal, but when I restart the computer it goes back to being small and fuzzy.
    It almost seems that no matter how I change it doesn't save the settings when I shut down in safe mode.
    Any help would be great
    My computer is a Compaq presario 2100 laptop

    Boot into safe mode and try removing and reinstalling your graphics. You should have had a Recovery disk and a driver disk with the machine; it's the driver disk you will need.
