    I don't know how it happened, maybe it was my cat, but all at once I noticed that everything on the screen is way too large. It doesn't matter which browser I use, all Icons, fonts, windows, everything is oversized. I tried the accessability wizard, didn't help. I don't know if this is a PC problem or a windows problem, I suspect the latter.

    The problem is not on this PC I'm on now. It's on my Toshiba laptop. M30X/M35X-S149, Windows XP Home Ed SP2

    Thank you for helping

    right click your desktop, go to properties, then click the settings tab on the dialog box that appears and under screen resolution change the slider to your liking.

    Sounds like the video drivers aren't properly installed, or perhaps the screen resolution got set incorrectly somehow. Have you tried going to Control Panel, Display, and setting the resolution correctly under the Advanced tab?

    I dunno if its the drivers because if the drivers are shotty then the screen would be in 256 colors and the person never mentions anything about that.

    I don't either, just mentioning all the possibilities. I must have been posting as you were, since I didn't see your response. :D
