Have not been on this computer in a while and needed to increase text size while checking email using firefox. Increased that thru view without a problem.
Then was trying to defrag . Wouldn't work so checked in cnet and went into safe mode and tried from there.
But wasn't willing to be patient so figured i would do that later.
Went to restart in normal mode.
Safe mode is no longer in corners. But desktop has the same mottled appearance. Tried to change the display properties, but as i hit enter or apply i can see it changing itself back to 16 colors and 640x 480.
And i dont know if it is related but the view online with mozilla firefox was working fine before this. . But even trying to set it back to normal size font or to decrease font size repeatedly does not help. The content just appears too big and to see the pages requires scrolling across.
Advanced stettings in properties says Color management sRGB Color Space Profiles.
It does not give any other options or choices.
Am not sure if I could have agreed to something I shouldn't have while trying to get into safe mode.
Under display properties WEb, it is set to View my active desktop asa web page. i did try to reset all there , but haven't noticed a difference.
If you need more information, please let me know.
Thank you for any assistance.
Dont' want to leave hubby's computer worse than i found it.
