Question about Computers & Internet
I used Nvidia to reconfigure the monitor. Thanks for all your assistance.

Someone or something ( software, games and even virii can do it ) has reset your video settings to a setting that your monitor does not like. If you are very lucky you might be able to simply reboot the computer and it would come back up with the settings you are used to seeing. That was the simply answer
Now for the more complex answer, Boot into Safe mode. right click on the desktop screen, go to properties and select it.
Hit the ' settings ' tab and check your settings, they should be low around 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 maximum for Safe mode. If they are not what I just mentioned, then place there using the screen resolution slider bar or any equivalent action ( depends on the video software ). Then reboot your computer into Normal mode.
In Normal mode I am sure you screen will look like the words and Icons are to large and you can't fit all your icons onto the desktop, Don't worry. Just right click on the desktop screen again, select properties, and then settings again. Place the slider bar or equivalent to a more reading condition of around 1024 x 768. The actual setting will depend on your preferences and what the monitor will handle, but unless your monitor is very new, don't go far beyond 1024 x 768 else you will run into the same exact situation all over again.
