Resetting the BIOS will probably get you back to where you were. If you want 32bit high color get a graphics card that will do that. Used computer shops sell them for $5 around here.

Here is what I would do. I would go into and reset the BIOS when you first turn on the computer.. If you don't know how , consider  disconnectng the power cord , openng the computer ,disconnect the battery for a minute, then reconnect it. That wil place the Computer back into the default settings which may put you back where you were. I believe that one may not set color settings to a higher setting that the computer and or OS can handle.

I know how to change the resoultion on a HP pavillion 504n but when i get to the slider it wont move its on 640 by 480 pixels how can I change it?

If the slider will not move, your monitor may not be capable of accepting the higher resolution. Check the kind of color you are using, medium, true of highest.

Monitor does not display picture,only the mouse pointer

If you're seeing only the mouse pointer it means there is likely a problem with your hard drive. Perhaps windows has a bad file. Has anything changed recently? Any new programs? A short? a strange smell?

Monitor turned black when i change the resolution to 32bit

press f8 when the computer starts up before windows boots and select start in vga mode or low resolution mode. after you get into windows change the video settings again but if the screen goes black, dont touch will revert back to what it was before. most likely, the resolution you picked isnt supported by the monitor. you also want to make sure that oyu have the video drivers installed properly aswell.

Sony VGC-RB30 won't start....

First things first, you may have already done this, but sometimes it can be overlooked...check the settings of the monitor(I've forgotten this several times when I first owned a pc). Next, if the settings are correct and not on "black or white or whatever color your monitor is", check for any visible damage to your monitor, such as cracks, missing pixels, etc. If you see anything out of the ordinary with your monitor, try to swap it with a monitor you know works, and power it up. If the 'new' monitor works, then all you need is a new monitor!

Depending on the internal video card, you have to install the correct driver for your monitor, and video card, other than that is just setting on control panel and advance setting , all the features, for the colors, or profiles.
