I have a strange problem on a Compaq Presario 2500 with an ATI Radeon IGP 345M graphics card.
The Control Panel 'Display' option will not open when accessed from the desktop right click, from Control Panel or the desk.cpl shortcut. The mouse pointer changes to the egg timer, but then returns to pointer and the Display window will not open at all.
I have completely removed all of the display drivers, restarted, removed them again, cleaned the registry of all ATI elements as detailed in a guide from ATI.
I have tried installing the ATI drivers, the Omega drivers, the supplied drivers from the laptop and the updated drivers from the Compaq website - all to no avail!
I have checked the McAfee VirusScan and it is up-to-date and have performed a full scan, all clear.
I am at my wits end with this one....any help greatly appreciated!
