Desktop screen got Blurred

I was using my Laptop yesterday as usual, but when I did shut down and then restart it, everything got Blurred (and still it is).
Please check the attachment to know more..
* Attachment 1: Blurred Screen
* Attachment 2: Screensaver couldn't initiate (as per it's time), during this blurred Screen


Other modes such as "Safe mode with Networking" is working fine (no blurring).

PS: Now I'm using Safe mode w/ networking.

Regards,
Maan.

Hello maan.

Please fill up your System Specs.
Follow System Info - See Your System Specs to know your system specs and feel it in here.

We need the information about your graphics card or onboard graphics.

Though apparently it seems that your GPU is outdated.

Your display is currently running on 640x480 resolution and 8-bit color depth.

Try the following:
Screen Resolution - Display Settings
Color Bit Depth - Display Settings
Screen Refresh Rate - Display Settings

If all else fails, you need to go to your PC manufacturer to update your graphics card to the latest version possible.
Reply back if it helps.

I attached the snapshots in the 'attachments' (named: Device Manager) that could tell you the configuration which might be needed.

[PS: My machine was working very fine, with the OS installed for long time, I don't feel the change of Graphics card, if I seek the same performance. It all just happened after I uninstalled some programs from Control Panel (which were not significant as far as I could remember) ]

That is the "only" resolution which is available now in 'simple mode'. Check the attachment, I post some snapshots. (named: 1. Display 2. Screen Resolution)

[PS: Now, I'm using "safe mode with networking" to talk to you guys]

Hi,

I agree, you should try to update the GFX card drivers - if you perform a Windows update, it may download and install a driver. Try that first.

Thanks everybody, for helping me out on this prob.

The Problem is Solved.

I figured out (with ur help of course), it was a minor issue, it just need to re-installing the drivers concerned (display/graphics; what ever you say it).

I doubted that earlier too but when I examined it (earlier) it shows the drivers are 'up-to-date' or 'working fine'. So, kept wondering what the prob. is supposed to be, if it shows 'driver's fine'

But today, I un-installed it anyways, and restarts my Lappy, VOILA, it automatically installed the drivers it needed.

and yeah, I'm posting this mess. in simple mode....(and Not 'Safe mode w/ networking).

Everything is Just fine as it was before, it was just Graphics driver un-installing.....

Thanx. everone,
Arc, JonathanV, Carl and Golden......it was a great help from you guys.
You guys made me feel comfy in this experience.
