Hi, I need a bit of help with this problem I've been having.
The other day I was on my new Compaq Presario CQ40-305LA laptop and I was exploring the configurations it had. It runs on Vista, and it was my first time using this OS, so I felt kind of lost. Anyway, while looking at the Intel Graphics Acelerator settings and it said something about rotating the monitor 180º. I clicked to see what it was and suddenly the resolution changed to something big like 640x480 and the screen wasn't upside down. Seeing this I tried to revert the things, but I couldn't not click any of the options but I could move the pointer around. I did what I always do when I'm in this kind of trouble, Ctrl + Alt + Del and went to the Task Manager and terminated igfxsrvc.exe process as it was the one related to the Intel Graphics application. Then it all started...
When starting up the PC the next day, the icon for IG application dissappeared and trying to "Run > igfxtray.exe" worked. And worst of all, I couldn't change resolution because it said the Vista is using the default VGA drivers and it has no options. When trying to right click the desktop in order to go to Graphics Options and the desktop froze and the cursor stayed on the loading blue circle of Vista. The icons in the desktop didn't worked either.
I tried using Restore system but apparently Vista fails to do that. Then I tried installing new drivers from the Intel website- didn't work either. So I'm here stumped and pulling my hair off trying to figure out something...any suggestions?
