I have a Microteck C593 flat screen and has been
Hello there! We can definitely fix this issue. It would be helpful to know what version of windows you are running, but it is not required. What you want to do is shut down the computer, get it to the point where it is all the way OFF. Go ahead and turn on the computer, and as it starts coming up, before you see the "Starting Windows" or similar screen, you need to PRESS F8 on the keyboard. To make sure you do it in time, as soon as you turn on the computer start pressing F8 on the keyboard, about once a second until it takes you to a BOOT OPTIONS screen where you have options like:
LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION
and others, not necessarily in that order, but something similar, you will definitely know when you get there. At this screen you need to use the keyboard arrow keys to move down to SAFE MODE and press ENTER on the keyboard. This will boot you up in safe mode. From this point, you need to RIGHT CLICK on My Computer (either on the desktop, or under the START button menu) and go to PROPERTIES. From there you should have a HARDWARE TAB, the second tab at the top usually. From there you should have a DEVICE MANAGER button. Click on that, it will pull up a list of hardware in your machine. We want to look for Display Adapters, and click the + sign next to it (on the left of Display Adapters) and it should drop down at least one option there. Click on whatever it is that dropped down, directly below and "attached" to display adapters. It will highlight the option. Now click REMOVE or DELETE, whatever button you have at the bottom. It will ask you to confirm that you want to remove the device. You do, so click YES. You should have only one option under display adapters, and now it should be gone. If you have more display adapters, remove them the same way, but DO NOT GO PAST DISPLAY ADAPTERS. We want to just remove any and all display adapters on the system. Now that it (or they) is gone, we can reboot the system. So click START, go to SHUTDOWN, and RESTART (I'm sure you're familiar with this) and let it restart normally. It will reboot into NORMAL MODE on it's own, so just let it boot up. Once in Windows it will detect your display adapter again and install it all by itself. When it's done it may ask you to reboot, go ahead and do that if it does. Now you can boot up the computer normally without problems! (This next part is only if it still looks strange to you when it boots up, if things are too large for example, otherwise IGNORE THIS NEXT PART IF YOU ARE SATISFIED) From there you can adjust the resolution (screen size basically) by right clicking anywhere on the desktop picture, as long as it's not on an icon, and go to PROPERTIES at the bottom. From there you can go to settings and change the resolution with the little slider bar and click ok. Now you should be good to go!
Please let me know if something doesn't make sense, or you can't find the things I talk about. If you do need to reply PLEASE include what version of Windows you are using (such as XP, Vista, or 7).
Thanks so much!
