Once upon a time, there was a melting image

help! I was dozing in front of a video on my computer when there was a glitch and bam! the sound went off and the appearance was all distorted.

It used to look like that:



And now it looks like this:





How on earth did that happen, and how do I fix it? (I already tried rebooting, which usually works when the sound is off, but it didn't work for either problem this time). The weird thing is that the Eric Bana picture on my desktop does not look weird, but when I open a video file it does (looks distorted, I mean - it looks like they're all crouching or something *shakes head in disbelief*)


ETA: you guys rock - it's all fixed now *hugs* :D
Current Mood:

It seems to me your screen resolution has been changed. Go to Démarrer, Panneau de Configuration, Affichage, Paramètres, Résolution de l'écran and see if it's the right resolution. Otherwise, it can be the refresh frequency (Same path but, in Résolution de l'écran, click on Avancé then Ecran and check what's the value for Fréquence d'actualisation du moniteur.)
