The monitor is a HP Vs17e.
Not sure what the screen res is but the quality is up to 32 bit (which is the highest).
Its not my computer, its my Dads, and hes not online and i dont live with him so i cant fix it whilst online so to speak.
Trying to work backwards, i am sure my Dad didnt do anything to major, such as upset his graphics settings or anything. It really must be something rather simple but i have been through the settings with a fine tooth comb and still it wont come right.
