Windows 7: Can't change screen resolution

Can't change screen resolution

Hi everybody. I have Windows 7 starter edition. Last night while I was installing updates my screen resolution changed to 800 X 600 all by itself. I tried to adjust the resolution in the control panel but there is no option for that anymore. It just say Default monitor on, and I can't change it.

I must add that my update installation was interrupted due to bad internet connection. Do you think that might have something to do with it.

If you have any suggestions it would be much appreciated. Please keep it in Laymans terms since I am not very computer savy

Thanks

Yala
