Well, fingers crossed, the issue I was having with my computer is fixed!
Well, the one that was preventing me from seeing what was going on with the computer is fixed!
Seems that there was some type of error with the drivers for the graphics card (for those of you who care about such technical issues) that was preventing the computer from displaying anything at a screen resolution of more than 640 by 480 with a color level of 4 bits. Things looked like crap. Thankfully, after calling the local computer repair place, I was able to (hopefully) fix it without too much of a problem.
Of course that's only until the next problem comes up! :P
