I was playing my usual game last night when all the sudden my computer just restarted. When it booted back up the resolution was not right. So I did a system restore and it seemed to bring everything back to normal. This morning when I power on my computer it's the same thing; this time when I did a system restore it did NOT fix my resolution.
When I right click my desktop I see the resolution is set at the wrong numbers, but have tried all my options and none seem to make it as big as my actual monitor.
The colors are off when I start the boot up, ( the Windows screen is not the right colors ). also colors still distorted while computer is running. I can no longer change the resolution size from 640x480.
I have also noticed it is NOT detecting my monitor name. When I right click my properties it would have the name off my monitor. I can NO longer see my detected monitor in my properties.
I can also NO longer detect my graphics card driver. When I try to load my Nividia properties, it says the program froze and needs to be closed. I tried reinstalling the most recent driver, and that will NOT work.
Is my GPU dying, or possibly monitor going bad??? Am I infected with malware? I am very good with this computer(keep programs up to date, keep surfing the web to a minimum, run daily scans).
I also tried restarting , and spamming "F8" before boot and trying- "Last good known start up", does NOT work.
Please help I am begging you. Should I replace my gpu or is it another piece of hardware causing this to malfuncition. I really need help!!
