    Default Screen display problem

    I just recently reformated my PC and first thing I recognised after the boot was the display setting of my Monitor. Well of course I tried to change it in the Display properties. So I switch to a 32bit color quality and a Screen resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels from a 4bit and a 640 by 480 display, BUT due to some unknown error it wouldn't save the changes.

    This is what my Desktop looks like

    Did you install your video card drivers yet? The wording of your post ("first thing I recognised after the boot") tells me you didn't even get that far yet.

    Ummmm....I don't know, I don't even have a video card to start with. I only have one that was built-in with the motherboard along with the sound card.
    Btw can I solve this by formatting my PC?

    No, you have to install your video driver. Even if the thing's an onboard card. Find out what your chipset is, and download the driver for that.

    If you're not sure what your chipset is, download the CPUID (431.55KB). Extract the program and run it. Go to the Motherboard tab, and find out what your chipset is.

    Edit:
    which reminds me, where is Jyuu anyway? Haven't seen him around for a while..

    even an integrated graphics card is still a graphics card. It should tell you what it is in the manual for your motherboard/computer.

    I don't know about the chipset, but defiantly find out the make and model number of the motherboard. From there you should be able to go to the motherboard manufacturer's website, look up your model, and download all the drivers for it.

    That is... assuming you don't have the disk for the motherboard already that should have all the drivers on it.

    I don't have the disk for the motherboard so I'll be downoading them drivers.
    But I still have another question, can this be solved by reformatting my PC?

    No. Re-formating won't help.

    The best thing you can do is download and install the drivers from the manufacturer's site. The next best thing you could try (and this may or may not work) is running window's update and see if they have the drivers in they're repository.
