they must have wiped it, and didn't install the graphics driver, unless the driver was the virus, just enable it and reboot, it will install your graphics card for you and then it will be sorted

Just go to Device Manager in the control panel. Then check your display adapters for the graphic card and enable it. Hope this helps!

Hi, I have the above mentioned problem, but my graphic card works just fine. Ideas, anyone?
Please use simple explanation because I'm a tech dumb, plus English is not my native language.
Thank you

edit: nevermind, just realized I changed resolution through some keyboard shortcut by accident. The reason I did not notice what is the problem is that I tried to fix it by changing between the higher two, because my programmer friend told me those are recommended (I know it should say which one is, but it doesn't), however I needed the third one.
tech dumb, as I said. anyway it's all ok now.
