Since yesterday, my friend's computer is refusing to display the desktop properly, making all text illegible at the normal resolution. Lowering the resolution to the lowest setting improves this a little, but it's still not right. The various screens after boot up and before XP kicks in show multiple copies of the desktop - starting in safe mode shows a complete but squashed desktop image in one corner, with parts of three others on the rest of the screen.
Is there an obvious cause that I'm missing? Thanks in advance.
