It sounds like your original account has become corrupt or something has changed your display settings. When you created the new account it set everything back to the default as far as display preferences are concerned.

Rather than try to troubleshoot the original account, it might be easier to copy everything over to the new account. Once you've verified that all your applications, documents, and settings have copied over, you can remove the old account.

Log on to the new account (make sure you have admin privileges) and open your old user name from the Finder. Before copying, we need to ask.... what version of OS X are you running?
