I don't understand why you cannot change the settings - If you are right click anywhere on the desktop nd choose properties > settings can you change the display resolution or it is grey out.
Do you have a graphic card installed?
does you graphic card work?

It sounds like you are missing a driver, or your computer is using the wrong one. You should be able to choose the "default monitor" driver but better yet would be "plug and play" monitor. Right now, your computer can't figure out which monitor you have, and it's set to whatever they used at Quicken

Have you considered it might be 'maxxed out' . . .

Without knowing the make and model of this copmputer, and without knowing the operating system, and without knowing the age of this system:

You may have a rather old machine that cannot change its screen resolution.
