This is actually more frustrating then it sounds. I've been looking online for solid answers and I have tried virtually everything that people had to offer. I've tried just doing a simple restart on my computer because 90% of the time a restart will more than likely fix my problem (this time it didn't).
I have downloaded and ran the Microsoft Fixit and that did nothing to help.
Here is my results: imgur: the simple image sharer
Then it proceeds to send me to this link: Microsoft Fix it Online
Tried all of these... tried updating my computer until there were no more updates available.
Tried this: imgur: the simple image sharer
Updated my graphics card (I think)... Made sure Nvidia was up to date (It was).
Made sure ClearType was on.
One link pointed me to this website about Java and I have no clue where to even begin with the "install" ----------------> Java SE 6 Platform Installation
(Also I don't suspect this has anything to do with Java)
After going through more forums and that whole fix it page. Can't seem to find anything that will help me. I do remember that i was messing around with my Monitor display settings before all of this started to happen... (Also I was doing a lot of windows updated and I updated and downloaded Silverlight)...
I remember doing this after I downloaded a game off steam called Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Here is a picture: imgur: the simple image sharer
(It wont let me change back to the default monitor and when I do change it back it wont let me turn the resolution up... I vaguely remember it being at default when my aero theme was working...
So hopefully that will give you guy insight to what I'm still trying to figure out.
Here is pictures of what it does when I actually try to change the theme and Window color and appearance.
This is what it says my current theme is: it isn't even windows classic... it's like a weird bright white box shaped like windows classic ------> imgur: the simple image sharer
This is what happens when I change it to Windows Vista theme: imgur: the simple image sharer
This is what happens when I want to change the Window color and appearance: imgur: the simple image sharer
& imgur: the simple image sharer
(Just sits there in black screen)
Alright well hopefully someone out there might know what to do. I'm always down to try new suggestions and ideas. Sorry if I seemed a bit negative but this is definitely something I don't like looking at, or not being able to fix.
Oh and here is what the taskbar looks like: imgur: the simple image sharer
Thanks in advance!
