    I just put in a Laser S315E-32p (by Kaser) graphics accelerator in my computer which runs win 98, and which has been to this point entirely satisfactory. It replaces a Jaton 9685PCI video card. The graphics accelerator seems to be doing its job except now everything on the monitor is double-sized, or is increased by some other multiplier. How do I get it back to normal size?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Right click on your desktop and choose properties, then settings. You should see a slider that lets you increase your resolution. Move it up a notch. click OK or apply and exit. (This is the set up on WinXP so what you see might look a little different) If this doesn't work there is always the possibility that your card is not installed right and you are just using "generic" windows vga.
