I ran the check disk and repair tool today. It found and allegededly fixed some bad clusters on the hd. When the pc rebooted, the display on the monitor was all washed out looking, and said a dll was missing. Looked almost like it was in safe mode, but with some weak colors. I tried several restore points, but the restore would not restore. I looked at the settings, and color is set on low, and I was unable to change the setting, as the option for medium and high wasn't there. What do I do now to restore the proper settings? Oh yeah, the box did pop up that asked if I wanted the system to restore the proper settings, and I checked yes, but nothing changed.

Hi

Uninstall and re-install your graphic drivers.

If your OS does not have built-in drivers then you'll be stuck with 8-bit color until you get the drivers from the manufacturer or chip maker.

Thanks, the drivers fixed it. I don't know why I didn't think of that. BTW, why would the drivers be lost when the disk check was used?

most likely due to that one file being either corrupt, or unrecognized.

so it probably got wiped along with all the real junk.
