The material display on the screen is to large to be able to see all of it.
I have tried to reset the display but it will not change from th lowest seting even with a new video card and new drivers for my HP vs17 monitor. What can I try next?

Change the resolution of the monitor/screen. On the desktop, point somewhere where there are no icons. Right click the Mouse button and select Screen Resolution or graphics properties. Click the tab RESOLUTION. If the computer does not show you any higher resolution, the monitor may not be able to display it.
Are you using two monitors?
Adjust the resolution of the one you use most and download the newest driver package from the manufacturer of your video chips - Nvidia, AMD-ATI or Intel.
The manufacturer's software has a special utility just for this purpose, to put great displays on two monitors or to adjust just the main one, can even display up-side-down!
The screen you are using is set to a resolution below what is needed. My guess is you are using a TV or widescreen monitor you have set to 1280 x 720 which is not large enough. Change the screen resolution to some higher than what is recommended like 1366 x 768 or higher.
From your description it sounds like your screen resolution changed on you. To change just right click on a blank spot on the desktop or control panel - display. Then click on the setting tab (right side top) and on this page in the middle should be display settings with a slider bar. Just move that to the right to increase the resolution. 1024 by 800 or higher is probably what you want. The actual number depends on the monitor your have. On my older lcd I use 1280x1024 as an example. The higher the resolution the smaller and sharper everything looks. The sharper it is the easier it is on your eyes. So you should go as high as you can which is usually limited by being able to read whats on the screen. ;-]
You cannot match a Pantone swatch book to your monitor unless you have calibrated it using something like Huey: http://www.pantone.com/pages/products/product.aspx?pid=562&ca=2 as a monitor is backlit and printed materials are not.
Depending on what sort of printer you are using, it also may need to be calibrated or have its profiles updated.
Would you be able to try a different monitor? Also when you say no display do you mean nothing at all comes on screen or it does not display windows. Also when you remove the monitor from the computer does it display color bars? signifying that its still working.
