I wanted to check out my comp on my new lcd tv... now I cant turn on desktop effects. when I go to appearance, I can't set it to normal

I get this message

Desktop effects could not be enabled

When I go to screen resolution.. it has my screen 14", and another screen labeled "unknown"

any ideas if this is linked? or how to fix this?
