just formatted and reinstalled xp home sp 2 on acer laptop, unfortnately I cannotchange the display settings, they are set at:
Display 800 x 600
colour quality 4 bit (lowest)
the slider will not move from the lest dise so cannot increase the 800 x 600
and the colour quality set at lowest is the only option, going into control panel, dispaly properties, monitor, everything is greyed out,
all suggestions gratefully accepted

Are your motherboard and graphics drivers installed? Download from the Acer website if they're not.
