Specs: Windows XP
I am not tech savy, somewhat computer literate. My computer, windows xp pro operating system Compaq 7500 monitor. will only play in small resolution screen , is display 16 bit medium color quality and 24 bit high. I will like to know how I may get my movies nad or videos to play in full screen 32 bit 64 bit.

On another totally separate computer I have another issue. The computer froze up on me one day it just quick downloading webpages and everything I thought it may have been the hard drive and that memory was running low, I had a friend do some work on, the hard drive may have been the problem the computer was say something like no bootdisk or something. that got fixed. well long story short, the computer runs slower than molasses down the stump of a tree and now the computer does not want to recognize the network adapter huh, so I am unable to access the internet on t this computer?? What should I do beside buy a new computer I can not afford that right now?

For the second part of the post.

Sorry, never easy for users that don't have tech guys as neighbors or family members.

The best thing would be to have someone look at it, either locally or over the network. Might have to pay a local repair shop to try to fix it. I suspect it will cost more than it is worth.

The other choice might be to see if you have a recovery cd/dvd. When you bought it, it might have had a way to restore it to the way it was from the factory. Some companys use a F key when you start it up. Might say F10 recovery console or something like that. Be sure you read you owners manual before you start that. Otherwise re-post this question at the hardware forums.

Fixing it might take a while but could be done if you work at it step by step.

BE SURE to read this. If you have important data consider saving it to dvd or external hard drive before you start any repair.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
