Hey every one, i just joined today and i would like to introduce myself to the community. I am male, in high school still, i got my first computer for my private use about 4 1/2 months ago, and i know i do not know all the things about a computer. i realized that when i changed my password to keep my sister off, but the next day i forgot it. so i have to do a system restore and take it to brand new. well it was fine and easy, but my computers screen resolution is stuck on 640 by 480 pixels and i cannot change it. well my question is how can correct this problem and if there is no way how would i restore it to brand new again? please help me out.

It's likely when you restored, your video drivers, responsible for
screen resolution beyond the basic 640 X 480, were sorta "left behind"

I usually consult the data provided by this free program
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/everest.html
since it will identify the drivers in use presently & also
list links that relate to your individual requirement(s) for updates.

An added benefit is you will see more about
your computer than you probably have been able to
in the last several months.

So, I think
if you can not right-click anywhere on your desktop
and get the Display Properties
-OR-
once you get that,
you can not bring up any further
screen resolutions than the default (640 X 480),

Give the driver update a try.

Using Everest Home to find out what you need.
Exactly.
