Hi, so before my computer had a BSOD and once it restarted, the resolution went crazy. It is now at 680x480 at 16 colors. My computer won't detect my monitor and I can't change the resolution. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and i had checked to make sure that all the cables are tightly plugged in. How can i fix this? I have even system restored and the problem still exists :/

680x480 is the only option I have, when i press detect it doesn't do anything.

Let's try this:

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html .

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When autoscan is done (screen comes up), click Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items.

Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt, copy all content and paste it into your next reply.

Also...download http://images.malwareremoval.com/vino/VEW.exe . Save to your desktop.

Double-click saved file...click Run...put checks in Application, System, Error and Number Of Events and put 20 in box for listing number...click Run.

Copy log content, paste into your next post.

Hi, the applications seem to not work for me. But I think I found out why it is like this. In my device manager for my Nvidia driver, it says
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
I used windows diagnostic tool and it said it cannot be solved. Do I need a new video card?

The card must need replacement. One other thing you could do is, if you have onboard video, try enabling and then check the difference. Or try another PC with a slot available or compatible to verify if it works or not.
