I have this computer in my house. I have a problem, and want to repair it.
So, I'm here.
On its own, my computer started displaying web pictures that look very
rough. Not much detail. Off colors. You can tell what the picture is, but
it is like a mosaic of the picture.
How do I correct this display?
Sounds like someone or something has reset your video driver to a
really shallow color depth (like 16 colors of 256 colors).
Go into Control Panel> Display and find the settin for number of
colors (exact location depends on your versio nof windows), and bump
it up to as high a number as allowed.
Right click on the desktop, select properties and then the settings tab.
Select the highest setting your system can handle. The symptoms you describe
are low resolution color settings. 256 is about the minimum to get decent
OTH your display card may have gone bad.
