I think it's an IE problem.

When I go to http://lsu.rivals.com/ the page format is different than usual. It used to display fine and now it seems like a word wrap problem or something. I have to scroll with the scroll bar from side to side to see the whole page. I checked this site on other computers and it displayed the page fine. Is it some setting I have accidently changed or something. I have not changed resolution.

TIA

See if this helps, got it from worldstart Newsletter Tips, theres a picture missing it would not attach here, but you dont need it!!!>>

Why do I have to scroll from left to right on many of the web sites I visit? Even with my browser maximized on my 17" monitor, I'm still scrolling! Any Ideas?

A:
This could be the result of a couple problems. The most likely problem is that your screen resolution is set too low. It's probably at 640x480 and most sites are designed with the assumption you're using a resolution of 800x600 (the most common).

To check / change your monitor resolution, right-click your desktop and select Properties. Next, click the Settings tab. You'll see a little slider gizmo that goes left to right. Make sure it's set to 800x600 or higher (the higher you go, the smaller an item will appear on your screen, so don't go too far).

Here's a sample shot (note that my resolution is set really high—this is because the LCD screen on my laptop looks best at that particular resolution. Most regular monitors wouldn't look that hot at 1400 x1050, so don't feel that you have to set yours to match mine).



Click OK. You may need to re-start.

The other possibility is that the site you're looking at is poorly designed. My site is designed for an 800x600 resolution, but I have it set at 750 pixels wide to allow for the sides of the browser window. If it was set to 800, you would still have to scroll a little unless your monitor was set higher than 800x600.

Thanks for the reply. The resolution is set on 800X600. It's just a 17" CRT cheapo monitor. The site has looked fine until last week?
