  1. please help me with this.

    the picture quality of the desktop is really bad and even the icons look weird. i kept the old resolution properties yet my monitor's picture looks distorted and different. Plus when i open a new window, the monitor goes blank and then shows a picture again. i have attached a desktop snapshot and the hijack file.

    thanks!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Uninstall and reinstall your graphics card drivers.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    It looks like the color settings are set to 256 colors. Have you tried setting them to 16bit or 32bit?

    its set at 32-bit. however, when i open a new window, the monitor flickers and the settings just change by itself. its weird. i have tried uninstalling and installing the graphic driver but its still not working.

    Try using Omega Drivers.

    Have you updated the video drivers recently? If so try rolling back to the original ones.

    i have done all of those. the resolution and color quality is okay when i open and use programs and applications but my wallpaper is still pixelated, the icon's edges remain pixelated and there this blue background on the icons name. ive attached another screenshot.

    i'm really bothered by this. what else should i do?

    thank you all for your help.
