Thanks

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
This is on my laptop that has microsoft xp. My laptop came unplugged and I didn't notice it until it went into hibernation. After that I plugged it back in and everything came back up HUGE.
Expert:  Santonu replied 5 years ago.
Please try the following first

Click Start- >Programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore.

Click Next, select a date when your computer worked fine, click Next twice.

Wait for restore operation to complete. When it does, the computer will restart automatically

When it starts again, let me know the results

Screen Resolution


Customer: replied 5 years ago.
screen resolution is 800 and color quality is highest {32 bit}
Expert:  Santonu replied 5 years ago.
You mean the screen resolution is set to 800 by 600

If so, try to click and drag the slider for resolution to the right until it reads

1024 by 768


Now press Apply (you can also press Alt + A)

If you see the picture, click Yes

Otherwise, wait for 15 seconds, the settings will be automatically restored

Let me know



Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Well everything fits on the page now but it looks pretty tiny. I don't know if it is because it was so big before but it moved my recycle bin to the left and up
Expert:  Santonu replied 5 years ago.
Yes it will look a little tiny for a while.

Open your MS Word and let me know if you see everything properly now

After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
