Windows 7: Display goes off the screen

Display goes off the screen

I was looking in the display settings of my computer, and under the color settings I clicked 'advanced' button (wanting to see the options.) Next thing I know-- the display went right of the screen in all direction and now refuses to go back to normal.

I went for a system restore to try and resolve it, but whenever the computer reboots it says this: Could not configure windows update, undoing changes now. It then promptly reboots and throws me back to the off screen resolution problem.

A system restore has always fixed my problems, but it seems my computer doesn't want to system restore anymore

I have a intel 4 IGM HD chip and connect up to my main display with an HDMI cable.

Any ideas how to get my computer back to normal?

I tried that, but it didn't work. The next thing I did was to restore the machine from a recent image file. I still can't get 1920x1080 to display properly, but 1650x1050 works OK.

Some of the settings, like auto-adjust are faded out in my monitors little smart menu too.

The image I restored to was taken when the machine was working 100%, but yet my display still won't work right. Line of thought: the display is crunked.

I need to know some things.

- Are you running with dual graphic cards?
- Do you have dual-monitors connected ?

And could you try to take a screenshot and let me review that?

No dual graphics, and it's only a HD-LCD connected via HDMI. No worries though, i got a replacement display sent out some days ago and all is well again. Thanks for the interest
