A friend of mine gave me a puter today and he was convinced that it was stuck in safe mode, but it's not because I can get on the internet. However, when I go into change the screen resolution the only option there is screen resolution-less and color quality lowest 4bit. It will not let me change it. Any one have any ideas? Thank you much.

Have you tried updating the video drivers, since you have internet acces?

Yep already tried that, this whole problem came about when he tried to install a new monitor, I have no idea what he did, just trying to avoid taking it to the shop. The resolution bar will absolutely not move though :thumbsup:

Don't forget to remove the monitor drivers - they may be causing the issue (and may interfere with the video drivers). Windows functions pretty well on the default monitor drivers - so installing specific monitor drivers is seldom necessary.
