    Dell 7500 Inspiron Notebook, Windows ME (n) Shut down for 9 months, when fired up the active window was smaller than the display size regardless of max button or fidddling with desktop properties display settings. How to fix this?

    TIA, FallingRock

    Reinstall your display driver. You need to reduce the size (or try reducing the DPI settings).

    Is that done by clicking "uninstall driver" (or something like that) in the CP Display and then rebooting to have it find and reinstall the onboard driver?
