Please help, my monitor has been at this lower resolution for about a month. I am running windows vista on a compaq laptop. I first noticed screen glitches i.e screen going black for half a second while trying to play videos in VLC player, this accord when I updated my video driver (videos still played fine). Soon after playing any videos of good resolution looked horrible (poor color resolution and pixelated images). So I rolled back my driver install but saw no changes so i rein-staled or updated my drivers and there is still no changes. Other problems that may be connected are #1 I cannot click on sleep mode, when I close my laptop it stays on when it used to go right to sleep mode. #2 An old game that worked fine gives me an error message 'Direct3D no suitable hardware found' and I can no longer play the game.

Did you download the Vista drivers from your laptop maker's website as you are supposed to do?
See if Device Manager is showing any driver errors.
