Recent Display Error: "stretched display"
Recently I downloaded an update to my AMD graphics driver, as it was out of date, however a BSOD caused this to be interrupted near the end of the download.
When I turned my computer back on, all windows seemed expanded, buttons looked different, screensavers and transparency were unsupported, etc.
In addition to this, when using Speccy to fill out system specs it reported my screen resolution as 0 x 0.
Although it's a bit unclear, the attached screencap shows how my display looks now. It's quite aesthetically ugly, I must say, especially compared to before this download.
I assumed the download failed so downloaded a new driver again, this time correctly (I believe I picked some wrong options the first time 'round), but no change has occurred.
Please help me get my display back to its normal, less expanded self

You will need to rollback the driver to your previous one, just right click the computer icon and go to properties, on the left you will see an option called "Device Manager", click on that and look under "Display adapters" right click the device under that and go to properties, at the top will be a tab called "driver", open that and there will be an option for roll back driver, select that and follow the on screen prompts, here's a screenshot of my graphics card driver page:
now restart your system and you should be back to how it was before you updated, if not then we can try a system restore.
