    Hangs up between system start up screen and I cant sign in


    Running Win8 all was fing and I notce the color had change on the toolbar. I go to control page and made a change to the resolutions and color an and click "ok". That's when it all hit the fan, The screen started flashing and won't let me get to the sign it page. the desktop screen will pop up quick, I can see the sign in box box it won't let me sign it. It will flash so fast that I can't type the password it and if I use the scanner it just flash longer.
