    HP computer running Vista Home Premium up to date with a HP w1858 LCD monitor.

    I wanted to set the screen display to make the text larger. Ended up in the DPI scaling screen. Set it to custom size 144 dpi or 150 percent of normal. Which gives me a nice size font on desktop, control panel and most web pages.

    Only problem is some screens do not show the entire screen ie on doing some software installs the accept icon does not show on the bottom and I cannot get the screen to scroll down to click on accept.

    Same deal now on control panel when I go to the DPI scaling to set the DPI back to normal or even set the custom DPI back to say 90 I can make the change on the screen but cannot get the screen to scroll down so I can click on apply icon to make the change on next boot.

    Any help appreciated. Is there anyway I can just get the monitor to go back to basis settings before I started messing around with DPI stuff ?

    Duh, I fixed the problem by restoring to a earlier version of vista. Should have thought a bit more before posting.
