Display Control Panel is DISABLED
« on: May 25, 2006, 07:08:10 PM »
A made a few tweaks about two days ago and was surprised that I cannot access the Display control panel, anymore.

I’ve tried two things:
1. I right-click on the desktop; select properties. But no access.
2. I go to the Start Menu; select Display. But no access.

I keep getting this message, “Your system administrator disabled the Display control panel.” How do I enable the Display control panel?

Using a Restore Point from prior to the tweaks comes to mind as a possible solution.

    jamesmag2325.......  This should fix things up ........ [highlight]But remember to backup the registry before you start just in case you do something wrong .[/highlight]
    Click on START, RUN and type REGEDIT, press OK. This opens the Registry Editor. Be careful not to change anything!!!!

    Look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER - click on + to expand it.

    Click on - Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/System.

    Then, under System, look for the file called NoDispCPL - this means it's the settings for displaying the Control Panel.

    Highlight NoDispCPL and double click - a box will appear called "Edit DWORD value"

    In the box called Value Data, it will have the number "1" - change this to zero "0".

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    Hi, dl65.

    I did what you suggested and it works. Well...sort of. I can now access the Display control panel but the drop-down options are all blank.

    Any other suggestions? Thanks.

       jamesmag2325..... Hummmmm ....What operating system are you using ?   XP ? ....... Home or Pro ?
      Is it possible to undo the tweaks you did which caused this issue ?

      The question remains, what exacctly WERE the tweaks that you did and how (and why)?
