the settings are set to big and I can not change them. When I go into the control panel and try to change the settings the screen is so big i can not get to the apply button to change it. This happen once before quite awhile ago and I can't remeber what I did to change it so I can get to the apply button. This problem is very flustrating because I can not use any programs, games or anything because the screen is to big and can't get to some of the commands. Thank you for you help.

Hi megan, welcome.

Can you boot to a dos prompt, type

scanreg /restore
and hit enter

is there a date prior to the problem but not too far back?


I'm assuming you aren't running Windows ME.

Right click on an empty spot on your desktop and click properties on the menu.
That should give you a smaller box to work with.It shows display items such as screensaver,etc.
Try changing your screen resolution to possibly 800 x 600.
Hope this helps.:O)

could also hit alt+spacebar.

select move...move the window up, down wherever until you can see the ok button and then hit enter. this will lock the window in the new position.


press ok on your changes.
