Well I was searching through the forums, to see who had the same problem as me.

I found one and I followed the instructions and it said to type "chkdsk /r" and I ran disk check at next start. So it took about 2 hours to do so, then my computer seemed to start normally. but the colors were all messed up.

I looked on the apperance tab when you right click on the desktop to change the resolution/color stuff, and the resolution was set at the lowest and the color was set at 4-bit.

I tried to change it but nothing happened, and I rebooted but nothing changed.

I know its not a hardware problem because the windows logo that appears at the start looked the same as it always did.

I need some serious help if anyone could give some advice that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Mr. Jack...

Sounds like you need to install the drivers for your display adapter (video card).

Yep that worked.

I guess it removed my drivers or something when it checked the disk...?

I dunno, but thanks anyway.

It's doubtful that the chkdsk operation would have removed the driver.

Glad that fixed things up... :whistling:
