[access-uk] Re: Screen resolution and colour

Hi Christopher.

Yes isn't it?  However, my computer was recently in to see the doctor and he 
told me that I had spilled a can of Coke which dripped into the back, and 
the internal fans throw it all over the place.  I'm afraid this computer is 
terminally ill!  I think he did replace the display drivers, so that's what 
is probably happening in my case.
