Try to insert the original cd of your incumbent operating system---if you are able to boot from the cd--do a repair installation of your operating system........
Your screen resolution is set to low. Right click the desktop and choose properties. Click on the "settings" tab and move the screen resolution slider to the highest your monitor will allow. Then change the "color quality" to highest (32bit). You may have to reboot for the settings to stick. Once this is done, go back to make sure the settings took hold and something isn't changing the settings back again. If this doesn't work, you can try to go to device manager and remove the display adapter, reboot and let windows detect it and install the drivers for it. It should find the best drivers available on your computer for the adapter. If you've played DVD's on your computer before and now it's not working, reinstalling the adapter can't hurt and my force the new settings stick.
What was your D Drive? Did it have data or was it your CD/DVD-rom drive? If it had data I would right click my computer -> manage. Then on the left look for Disk Management and left click on it. Look on Disk 0 to see if there is another partition (section) besides the C drive. If there is try to right click it and assign a drive letter to it. This will mount the drive and you may be able to access it. if you are still having issues try to right click it again and mark the Partition as active. If these steps don't work you may need to take it to a shop to restore the drive and/or data. You don't need to buy a new disk. What does this have to do with the bluetooth USB? If this is a CD rom drive just try to reboot the computer.
The os is always first need to have some sort of graphics to see what you are doing, all graphics card have a generic vga driver install so you can see the display and the last software to be install ,the motherboard drivers are next, usually the chipset and usb drivers, and then the graphic card drivers
will be numerous issues, examine Drivers and such in My Coputer>units>Harware.

That decision will fix all the Hardware and any lacking or corrupt information.
Hi, It could be SEVERAL things ... and each of them depends on some piece of information You did not include although You were trying to be very thorough ... (please don't read that as rude or condescending) ... 1) It *could* be related to a BIOS setting that is used to run SATA harddrives on systems running older OS's like Windows XP. It's a switch between usually AHI / AHCI modes ... one limits the amount of space on the drive shown to the internal controller / drivers software. 2) It *could* just be a loose wire or connector in the system. 3) It also *could* be a problem with "formatting / partition tables" on the drive itself ... which tell the system's hardware what size, type, and design the drive is for reading from / writing files or info to it. These can be FAT## / NTFS / Reiser# / etc ... The easiest way to check the drive itself as a piece of physical hardware ... (BEING VERY CAREFUL IF YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH IT) is to dload a copy of the SO file and burn the CD for Puppy linux ... I recommend the Racy Puppy ISO for most fairly modern system between say 2004 & 2013. Once You're booted into Puppy, (remembering that this IS a completely functional OS, and CAN wipe harddrives, etc) use the menu to start the GParted program ... and have it look at "all drives". You will then be able to tell if the harddrive is physically plugged in and functional if it shows up. There's a small dropbox on the top right that lets You view a different drive's info ... they'll show up as sda1, sda2, and sdb1, sdb2, etc ... The sda# devices are Your 1st harddrive and the sdb# devices are Your secondary system harddrive ... the number is like the letter in Windows. G'Luck!!
