Not sure what I have done, everything on my screen has become distorted, have tried adjusting the controls, system restore, panicking, its Windows XP Home by the way so I presume I cant do a restore factory settings (even if I knew how to do it). Errr help, please?

'distorted covers a very wide range' unless you can be more descriptive i suggest that you try a system restore to last known good working point, that is unless you have been mucking about with the monitor settings !!!!!!!

Got any speakers placed near the screen? If yes, try moving them away.

Dont shout, well yes i played about with the settings and tried de-gausse but we are still all convex and concave and I need glasses <grin>

in the settings for your monitor there should be a recall option this will set your monitor back to factory settings.

Restart the computer and press F8 on booting up. Now pick safe mode. Let the computer load. Now right click the desktop and pick properties. Then the settings tab, move the slider to 800x600x16bit and apply.

Reboot the computer.

It's the controls on the monitor that need adjusting not Windows that needs restoring

No recall option, F8 didnt take me to where I wanted to be, still bendy

I'm with Woodchip on this one. You need to adjust the monitor, it's nothing to do with Windows.

You have been playing with the controls on the front of the monitor do some more playing and watch the screen as you make adjustments
