    That might of been the problem. I messed up the screen settings on my imac and it looked really bad. Most of the icons were big and blurry. Did you get the external hardrive fixed though?

    For some reason, the external hard drive could of been seen as an external something else that required a screen resolution reset. Glad to hear that you got everything fixed. Drumerdude asked before, but did you get the hard drive working correctly? If not try reformatting it by using Disk Utility.
