Fix my display

I downloaded some kind of update/patch from the IBM site the other day - i
think it had to do with my NVidia video card. Once it downloaded, my display
is now showing as 800x600 resolution and i cannot change it. i tried doing so
by moving the arrow to "highest resolution" but every time the screen
updates, it just goes back to where it was before (800x600) - and of course
everything on my screen is now way too big. I never had this problem before i
downloaded the update. Please advise.

Open Control Panel - System and go to the Hardware tab.
Click on the Device Manager button
Click on the + sign in front of the Display Adapterso category line.
Right-click on the entry for your nVidia display adapter, select
Properties and go to the Driver tab.
Click on the Roll Back Driver button and follow the instructions to
revert to your previous video driver.

Good luck

Get the proper driver from the web site of the manufacturer of your
video card. Make sure you know the correct model #.
