    Right click an open area of your Desktop, click properties, click settings.

    You want 'colour quality' set highest.

    You want to start with 1024*768 resolution.

    Then click advanced - click on GeForce 8600 (or whatever the 8600 says) and then let me know if you see a 'start the Nvidia Control Panel' button.

    No needed - I just like to help.

    Be nice to someone today. That's payback enough.
