Doing a Repair Installation of Windows (using the link in my signature as a guide) won't cause any damaage to your system. All your programs will still work afterwards and you won't lose any of your files or settings. All this does is replace the operating system files (C:\WINDOWS). You will need to redo all Windows Updates after doing this.

You know how you use the two programs that came with the monitor to control the colors and such on the monitor and the profiles.
Well, everytime I boot up a game, it automatically turns my screen super light...how do I make it stay dark like my desktop??? It doesnt work!

What it looks like though is that the settings for your video card are conflicting with the settings for your monitor program.

Question for ya. I did a repair install of Windows XP, and I went to go and install all the Microsoft Updates from the website. I downloaded a few of them and they installed with no problem. However, when I got to Service Pack 2, it downloaded and began the scanning and backing up process of system files and the registry. After about 15 minutes of it running or so, it all of a sudden gives me an error that says:
on the top in the blue bar next to the X to close it: "Service Pack 2 Setup..." or something along those lines
then the error says "Access Denied."
I am on the only administrator account, the only account on the computer, and this has happened numerous times after numerous restarts. I have no other programs running. I also turned off my antivirus and firewalls and such too.
Any ideas, or should I just do a clean install of Windows XP?
I can grab my actual Windows XP Home disc from my other comp at home. The one I used was the one that came with my current pc, but it was just a Recovery disk so I dont know if everything was on there or not. So, should I just use that and do a clean install and save my important files on my hd?
