What exactly are U talking about?
The screen in generally, just the desktop, the wallpaper, the menu, the icons?

Maybe U change brightness somehow or gamma?
Maybe U can use buttons on monitor or combination keys to adjust it. Your video card also must have a panel where U can change that.
Or maybe U changed color depth.
Go to Right click>Properties>Settings and use a higher color depth.

Or it's something else?

No buttons? Maybe there's a combination key U have to use. I don't know what model of compaq U have, but if U go to the compaq site U can download the manual to see how to adjust the monitor brightness, etc.
the phone/internet/ that change display color thing is weird. I personally didn't encounter such a thing.

about video card settings:
Right click on the desktop> properties>settings tab> Advanced>adapter . A panel should appear.
Look for something related to color adjustment. There U should find gamma and brightness.Adjust it.
...or right click my computer>properties>display adapter.
The name listed there, is the name of your video card.
You can look now in control panel to see if u can find it.

If the gamma, brightness isn't the problem,
Try a system restore from:
Start>run>msconfig>system restore to a previous date.

To check if it is a video card problem:
Restart computer
Press F8 . On the menu you should see something like Vga mode or enable vga. Press enter.
(with this we'll see if your video card is the problem or not. If you see normally, then your video card is the trouble.)
