Best guess would be your video driver is either corrupted, or simply reset to low resolution

Be sure you are not still booting into safe mode Then, right click on the desktop screen Click "properties" then "settings".

See if Windows will let you boost your video settings

If not, assume your video drivers have been corrupted Sometimes, the correct drivers can be hard to find

Hopefully, you still have the original restore CD which came with your Compaq PC.

Otherwise, try

They have a rant about Compaq's encoded "restore" CD's, and other useful information.
