All of a sudden my monitor's completely messed up. There's broken vertical yellow lines across it, random grey bits and all the colours are messed. Everything got bigger too, it looks really old school. Apparently it happened when the mouse stopped working so someone reset it which screwed the whole thing up. I can't view any pictures properly, help!


And now it's worse. It keeps changing the resolution back to minimum and 4 bit colour. I can barely read anything! It wont let me change the stupid things.

I don't know how to delete the above, so I'll just mention that it's fixed. Something about the adaptor modes in the display settings.

It actually screwed up again, so I guess I didn't really fix it. But after spending 2 hours clicking random things and pretending I knew what I was doing I think I fixed it properly this time and learnt a [bleep] of a lot. Uninstalled and reinstalled the graphics driver and everything's back to normal :)3 hours ago I didn't even know what a graphics driver was! Just wanted to update in case someone else with as little computer knowledge as me has the same problem.
