As the title says, my screen is all messed up. I forgot to shut it down one night and woke up to my background being all messed up, everything is fuzzy, and appears to be zoomed in slightly. It has the terrible clarity of one of those really cheap wide-screen, jumbo-screen laptops. I did accidentally leave Limewire running, so I thought a virus slipped through but after running a million scans through my symantec, as well as Malwarebytes and others, it came up with trojan.brisv.a!inf but it was partially cleaned and quarantined, so I don't think thats the problem. I also did the removal tool from symantec with no luck. Is this something other than a virus, like some setting I accidentally could have changed? I posted a similar topic in the "am i infected" forum but nobody has even replied. I run vista on a toshiba satellite.

Hmm, not sure what to tell you, just saw no replies so decided to try to help. Have you tried to change your screen resolution? If not, try that. Other than that I'm not sure, maybe the lack of care for your computer. You just might have to buy another screen. :huh:
