It's not that, but thanks for replying. I'm thinking of just buying fraps, as my friends don't seem to have problems with it. It's not the aero change that annoys me though, its that it wont change back.

System Restore will not lose any of your data but may back out recently installed programs. There is an option to view which programs will be affected as you go through the process.

It is a good idea to turn off any Anti Virus software immediately before you do the SR as they can interfere with it.

I did some googling and found out Mirage Driver May be associated with TightVNC do you have it installed by chance?

Looking at that screenshot you provided I think it is that Mirage Driver that is causing your problem.

Please tell us the make and model number of this PC so we have some kind of reference to go by.
Will you take a screenshot of Device Manager with Display adapter expanded so we can see it.

That helped a little, what I'm trying to do is find out what drivers that came with this laptop. I went to this site MEDION Click on the more button Where it says download library and on the next page it will ask for the model number to get to the driver page so I need you to do one more thing look at this screenshot below and then turn over your laptop and see if you can give me the two numbers highlighted on the bottom.

Software that forces basic colour scheme
