    Im currently operating on a Dell Dimension with Vista Home Premium on a multiple account system. Soon after I installed WarCraftIII, the screen started changing to a whiter contrast. After about 20 seconds of being logged in, the whole desktop suddenly lightens in contrast, and all my photos become messed up. This is a particular problem becuase my sister uses a picutre editor frequently, and cant adjust her photos correctly. I insinuated that either re-setting the monitor settings or uninstalling WarCraft would fix the problem, but the problem still remains.

    Is this a video card driver problem, or do I have to get a driver update or something?

    Thanks,

    First thing to do is a system restore. Type 'system restore' in the start menu and press enter. Select a date before the problem started and follow the instructions. If it doesn't fix your problem, then the problem wont be software based but hardware based.
