How do I make my display smaller so that everything fits on ...

Customer Question

How do I make my display smaller so that everything fits on the screen? I cannot see everything on screen because somehow the display turned huge and you cannot fit everything on the screen.

Optional Information:
OS: Windows 98

Already Tried:
I changed the screen resolution to 1024 x 768 pixcels and hit enter b/c I can't click on the apply and save buttons. This restarted my computer but this did not change anything, the display is still too big to fit everything on the screen

First go to control panel, then systems, the click on the device manager tab, then remove your monitor and video card, then it will say that you need to restart for these changes, then restart and it will say that you have new hardware, let it set them up, it will ask you to restart once again, when you do restart your computer should return to its normal state.

If you can't do this do this in safe mode
