It sounds like your son might have changed the resolution to something that isn't supported by your system. The configuration isn't removed during uninstallation, so that's why reinstalling didn't fix the issue.

It should be easy enough to fix by changing the resolution back in the graphics settings configuration file, or simply deleting the file and resetting everything to default.

First, find the graphics settings file. In your "Documents" library, there should be an "eDiving" folder. This is where eDiving stores configuration files and some other info. In the "configuration" folder is a file named "graphics.ini".

As I said, if you simply delete this file than eDiving will use the default graphics settings, which should work.

You can also change the resolution that eDiving uses by editing this file in a text editor. The first two lines (window_width and window_height) set the starting resolution, and the third line (start_fullscreen) determines whether eDiving will run fullscreen (1) or as a window (0).

Hope that helps :)
