well ok! haha im calm now but im not the computer wiz i would like to be!
so i dont know exactly what operating system i am using i just browse through and see if i can make it work.
I dont know what i uninstalled , thats my biggest problem i thought that if i just described what was going on then it would help you to locate the problem. but the screen has like no proper colour and then when i want the screen area to change the curser wont allow me to change it.
i think whatever i uninstalled was the basis for the problems
does that help?

ok... Well, if we knew which Operating System you are using, then we might be able to save ourselves a lot of trouble... Lets try this to figure it out... In safe mode, click Start -> Run ... In teh run box, type  dxdiag  ... After, you might see a small text box display... Just click no to that... Next, you will see a rather large window... It will list your system information... Would you mind reading of the Operating System according to the window please?

THUMP! (Flame has stroke) lol  Well... Lets find out... do this... Click on Start -> Run ... In teh run box, type  dxdiag  ... After, you might see a small text box display... Just click no to that... Next, you will see a rather large window... It will list your system information... Click on the Display tab on the top... Next, look at the top-left of that new page... Can you tell me about the information you see at the top-left there?

ok.... Beinf that our manufacturer seem to be a "unknown", then that concerns me... I'm out of ideas... If you want, I can help you just erase and reformat your hard disk...
