I've had a Vista machine (Tosiba Satellite laptop) for a few months now. We play some games on it including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II. This game doesn't consistently run on the computer - sometimes I get an error message saying an error has occurred and the program is being shut down, and the next minute it runs fine. However, that's not what I'm posting about.
The game does something (what, I couldn't guess) to the graphics that makes everything look washed-out and overly bright. Usually this goes away after the game is shut down or, at worst, after restarting the computer. In the past couple of days, however, when I start up or restart my machine, after Windows loads, the graphics go all washed-out and ghostlike, even without running the game. If I start up the game and then close it, everything looks fine again... until the next time I start up my machine again. I have no idea what's happening here, much less how to fix it. Any help?
