Question about HP Compaq Motherboard
I tred resetting the resolution and color, but it did nothing
Okay. It seems that although you have a video problem it's not completely dead so you can at least see something. The good news is it takes all of about 5 minutes to install a new video card. When you open your case, you'll see some long slots that are empty. There are a couple of white ones. Those are known as PCI slots. Depending on the age of your PC, you'll have either an AGP (probably not) or a PCI Express slot. You'll need to know which one you'll be using so you buy the correct one. If you look up the specs on your PC at the manufacturers website, it'll tell you. If you're unsure, tell me what it is and I'll let you know.
As for installation, put in the cd that comes with the card first and install the drivers. It's fairly automatic. Next turn off the PC and put the card in the slot. Plug your monitor cable into the new card and power it back on. Good to go!

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your
screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear
smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer
items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very
low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges.
For example, 640 × 480 is a lower screen resolution,
and 1600 × 1200 is a higher one. CRT monitors generally display a
resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768. LCD monitors can better support
the higher resolutions.
Whether you can increase your screen resolution depends on the size and
capability of your monitor and the type of video card you have.
Text and images are sharper and smaller at high screen resolutions
Text is larger and easier to read at low screen resolutions, but images are blocky and fewer items fit on the screen
Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
