Last night, I decided to unplug my laptop from the external monitor, keyboard, and mouse so that I could sit other places and be comfortable
When I set the laptop screen to "on" it showed the computer on the laptop screen, but the display didn't fill up the entire screen. I knew this was because of my resolution so I went in and tried to change it to a wider and shorter one. When I hit "Apply" it didn't give me the "Would you like to keep the settings?" dialog, it just applied it. The resolution I choose made the display really distorted (to a point of really no use) I tried to go into Safe Mode and change it but the display settings only changed it for Safe Mode (of course) and I still have a distored display in "normal" mode. I dont have a system restore point, so I'm thinking I will have to just do the best I can to change it dealing with the distortion?
Would uninstalling the display driver in Safe Mode and then restarting to "Normal" mode work? I just thought of that (lol) and I'll try that right now.
I got it :D I was able to use the computer enough with the distortion to be able to change it to a useable resolution.
