    Yes... Here's the thing, I reformated the computer... I have an MDG computer, when I go to properties/settings the screen resolution is stuck on 640 by 48- pixels and when I try to move the arrow it wouldn't move, and the colour quality is set on Medium (16 bit) and the drop down box has no more options in it... I think it's missing a driver or something... I'm not sure.

    What's happening is you didn't load the drivers for your particular video adapter so its reverting to SVGA as the default. You need to find out what adapter you have and load the drivers for it.
