    My screen resolution dropped horribly, just from re-starting the computer (well, trying to multiple times). I tried to re-set it (start-settings-control panel-display-settings), but theres just no other option besides 16 color and 2 color and 640x480 pixels for the screen.

    How might I get back to how it should be?

    Sounds like your video card driver got corrupted. Windows will default back to VGA mode when it can't find a suitable driver. Try manually reinstalling the driver and then you should have all of your choices once again.

    Being as stupid as I am, I have one question. How do I do that? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Well, somehow I figured out how to set it to "super VGA", which has the settings I had before, but it wont let me run that cause it says the adapter or something is wrong. I'm getting tired of looking at 16 colors. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Why does my computer have to constantly screw itself up?
