Hello

I downloaded a photo-editor SW for a free trial before purchasing, and a message asking to set my display to 24bit color came up and I did the change from 256 to 24bit.  I did not care for the SW and uninstalled it, I set my display back to 256 and now I have a problem...

The font looks like when you would start is Safe Mode...not the crisp clear presentation as I had before, sort of like a leaky pen.  This carries over into all my windows programs, ie, word, express, even now....at experts

Icons and pictures are also distorted and fuzzy.  Is there a setting that the photoeditor might have changed that I can change back.  

Thank you for your help.

go into display properties and make sure your display adapter hasn't change.

If so just click change and reinstall you reg adapter, driver will be in your system.

Is your resolution the same as it was?  Also check your refresh rate.  If your notebook is older, the refresh rate will probably need to be at 60hz.  If it is newer, probably 75hz.

Expanding on astronot79's comment: When you upped your colour depth setting, it may have forced resolution down a notch (due to restrictions in video memory size) and this may look very odd on a laptop screen. Worth a check.

Thank you

I restored the settings - on screen display and monitor from the QuickRestore CD, I would imagine that all the related drivers were restored as well, I am back in business.

Thank you for your help
