I think you know the first thing you did wrong!
Try booting into safe mode using the F8 key on startup and then do a system restore back to before your grandson visited. You could also choose "boot to last known good configuration"
Then password protect the computer and don't let him know what it is!

    The language is set in the control panel. It's under Region and Language. If it's in Japanese, then you'll have to go by the icon. In Windows 7, it's a picture of the world next to a clock. The first block selects the language. Select English. This should look the same in Vista. In XP, it's just an icon of a globe. Again, the first block is where you choose the language.
    Once you get into English, you can change the display properties, and you also should have brightness and contrast controls on your monitor.

Need the operation manuel for my 22inch Gateway monitor can't change operating language


I have a smaller sized Gateway monitor than yours, but I'm sure the monitor buttons (on the front) perform the same functions on all sizes.

You should have eight control buttons on the front of the bezel (as listed from left to right): source, menu, down arrow, up arrow, left arrow, right arrow, auto/set, and on/off buttons.

Press the menu button, the first dialog screen that appears (at least on mine) is the brightness/contrast function. The screen will show the function to be changed, and a very small picture of what screen you have in view.

Once the first function is listed on the screen, press the down arrow to access the other screens (color, tracking and set-up), each having their own little picture indicating what screen you are looking at.

Brightness/contrast - picture of half light, half dark circle
color - RGB picture
tracking - two squares on top on one another slightly off center
set-up- hand pointing left

You want the set-up screen which shows a picture (I think) of a little hand pointing to the left. Once you are in the set-up screen, press the auto/set button and the first line will be highlighted (usually it is the language choice).

Once highlighted, press the right arrow button until your language name appears (i.e., English, Duetsch, Francais, Espanol Italiano, -there is no choice on mine for Japanese, etc.).

Press the menu button again and that should do it.

The language on my menu has changed to Russian. How do I get it back to English


Press one of the buttons on the monitor to activate the OSD (On Screen Display). Wait about a minute -- the OSD probably will cancel itself, if you've pushed the correct button.

Then, use the other "left/right" or "up/down" buttons to navigate through the various settings (contrast, brightness, et cetera) until you get to the "language" setting. Press the "accept" button to select it.
Press "left/right" or "up/down" until 'English' is displayed. Press the "accept" button to choose that language. Then, wait a few minutes, for the OSD to "self-cancel".

Display menu virus? :(


try disconnecting your network cable and adjust the settings again, if you cant, enter safe mode by pressing f8 in the startup and select safemode then adjust the contrast there.

Or is this in the CRT monitor? inside the monitor? there are no viruses ever made for monitors. So its most likely a hardware fault in the crt. Maybe its time to buy a new one. LCD preferably easyer on your eyes.

Al 1916 problem


really? here's the thing..try to check the display settings manually.press the menu button of your monitor then try adjust the contrast, brightness and colors as well to your desired level..if your'e using LCD monitors, these are very sensitive and can be easily damaged if don't handle it very well..don't press the auto button always because it will automatically adjust the settings every now and then..

Bright screen with very low contrast


I fixed it myself, it seems that the monitor have some problems remembering it's settings and sometimes it automatically set its settings to crazy values that are out of the range that we are allowed to input. For my case, the setting that was crazy was the gamma setting since it was set so high. I wasn't able to bring it back to a normal setting so I found a way to do it by resetting the monitor. So to reset these display settings such as colour, contrast, brightness and gama, you need to turn on the monitor and unplug the monitor without turning it off and plug it back in again. It will automatically power on and the correct default settings will be present.

This forum isn't very helpful is it?
