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.

Tell me what you find ...

My screen looks like a photo negative..I have a Toshiba Satellite.


Right click on your Desktop, click on Properties, then go to the Settings tab and set the color to 32 bit True Color.

It sounds to me like your display settings are set to monochrome/black and white.

Best Regards,

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?
