I was playing a video game that goes into MS-DOS mode, and when I was done playing the game, it stayed on the those settings so that my windows graphics still look like low-resolution bitmap images (it looks like i am Safe-Mode). And the whole screen is sideways.

I tried restarting the computer several times, and it sill looks the same. I booted into Ubuntu
and the settings are normal, so it has to be something in Windows Vista, although I don't know what to look for or change.

How do I change this back to the correct settings? I don't even know where
system restore is in Vista.

Hi, Go to start then pick control panel, open it, under Appearance and Personalization
Pick Ajust screen resolution. Now you can change it from there.
