Hi my computer is working fine except I just downloaded Sims 2 and it sort of messed up the grahics settings so i downloaded a new driver and that helped. Now it seems that my toolbar and my Start toolbar have lower resolution than my desktop ( like during safe mode). I reset everything but it still doesnt go back to normal...and by the way my graphics driver is intel extreme graphics 2 (the newest version).

I would say change the resulation to 800x600 16 bit color. and then back to what ever you want. Go to advanced in the display window and click monotor and put the herts up to 70-75 or so. hope this helps.

I'm not done with you...LOL

go to your device manager and uninstall the video card and restart let windows reinstall it. If that does not work go into safe mode and remove it there and see if there are more than one. Sometimes windows has like a GHOST driver loading and it can cause things not to work.

did you try system restore, using a restore point prior to your recent changes?
