I have a laptop with WinMe on it. When I turn it on, the toshiba logo is normal size, but the boot menu and splash screen are really small. how can i change this? :confused:

Many Thanks!

Is that the only problem?
For example, once ME loads, is it the correct size.
Has it always been this way?

Tough part is that usually that boot screen is more of a DOS screen. It is shown way before any drivers are loaded.

Something to try is boot from a floppy and see what the screensize is.

Also might see if there are any settings in the BIOS that can be changed relative to this problem.
