Run the WinAudit on your machine and save a report to the desktop. Click the "Audit" button (top left) to start the audit. Once complete, click the "Save" button, choose the desktop to save it to, and click on "Save". This will generate 3 files on your desktop...right click on "rightframe.html" and point to "Send To" then choose "Compressed (Zip) folder".
Attach that zipped folder to an e-mail to me.

Look in the list for the following..double click on each and choose "Automatic" from the Startup Type drop down menu, then click the "Start" button:
Intel® Graphics Chipset (KCH) Driver
Intel® Graphics Platform (SoftBIOS) Driver
Once these services have been started, close all open windows and reboot.
See if you can change the settings.

Double click on the downloaded file to install the driver. Use the default location to install to and click "Next". If prompted to replace files, click "Yes to All" so that all previous files are replaced. The driver should install.
If this doesn't install and allow you to change your settings, let me know and we'll do a manual install.
The only problem I see in the WinAudit report is this particular driver.

Open "My Computer" and double click on the C: drive...right click in the open C: drive, point to "New", and choose "Folder". Name this new folder New Drivers.
Download This File and save it to your desktop (this is the Zip version you downloaded earlier...if you still have it, you can skip the download).
Right click on the downloaded Zip file and choose "Extract All". Extract the files to C:\New Drivers
Click "Start" then right click on "My Computer" and then click on "Properties". Click on the "Hardware" Tab and select "Device Manager".
Select "Display adapters" then Double click on the graphics controller shown.
Click on the "Driver" tab and select "Update Driver...".
Select the following option: "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)". Click on the "Next" button.
Select the following option: "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install". Click on the "Next" button.
Select "Display adapters". Click on the "Next" button.
Click on the "Have Disk..." button and then the "Browse" button.
Browse to the directory where you unzipped the file you downloaded, C:\New Drivers, and then open the "Win2000" folder. Click the "ialmnt5.INF" file and choose "Open".
Click on the "OK" button. A window listing all of the available display types should open. Select the display adapter that your system contains (Intel 82845G) and then click on the "Next" button.
The operating system will install the driver. Click on the "Finish" button when done.
Click on the "Close" button and then manually restart the system. After the system restarts The driver should now be loaded.
Let me know how this goes.
As a side note...I'm not having much luck with the folks at Microsoft. They keep referring me to eMachines...we may have to contact them for the correct disk to restore the original operating system.

Let me know how this goes...

We need to figure out just what the recovery disk you used changed on the Hard Drive that is making it so difficult to install the Intel drivers. I'll have to do some research on this...be patient, I'll get back to you as quickly as possible!
Do you know what model machine the recovery disk you used was originally shipped with?

Gateway has a restore issue with some computers that require you to go into the BIOS and disable Hyperthreading until the restore is completed.
That was the problem with mine.
Soon as I disabled hyperthreading, restore worked fine.
