    Hey all,

    My screen resolution is currently out of wack. I dont know how it got to this state but I need it back in its original state. I know how to adjust the screen resolution, but none of the resolution sizes that are avalible how reverted it back to its original. I also tried the sizes of text and other items, making then 125 and 150% of the original size. Nothing makes the screen revert to its original resolution.

    Im running a Windows 7 on a Brilliance 107(?), which I know I shouldn't be, because the moniter is old (its a CRT).

    Any help will be aprricated.

    Kingmate you said
    I need it back in its original state. Was that large text ?
    If you want large text and a large screen try.
    Right click your empty desktop - Screen Resolution - Using the slide lever
    put it to 800 X 600. You have only 15 seconds to click ( Keep these Changes )
    Next
    Click Make Text larger or smaller - Set it to 150 % - click Apply
    This requires a restart to start working.

    If you need the Text larger you will need to use the magnifier.

    Click - Start - In the Search above Start type magnifier.
    If I'm giving the wrong information than you've lost me.
    Your Refresh rate for your monitor is usually set at 60
    If you have an old monitor, maybe it's time to buy a new one.

    I think you lost me...

    I know how to change the size, but all the option avalible to me do not put it back to its original form. I tried increasing the text size for all the options, that got me nowere to.

    And yea, I am updating soon, but in the meantime I need to use this box.

    Will you comfirm that you clicked -To keep these changes - before the 15 seconds expired ?

    If you want large text and a large screen try.
    Right click your empty desktop - Screen Resolution - Using the slide lever
    put it to 800 X 600. You have only 15 seconds to click ( Keep these Changes )

    ===============================================================
    When you changed to 150% did you click APPLY ?
    And after that did you Restart your computer ?

    Click Make Text larger or smaller - Set it to 150 % - click Apply
    This requires a restart to start working.

    Confirmed that I have clicked that. It might just be the moniter crapping out and telling me to get a new one, ive decided.
