What is causing my interface and resolution to become huge?

Question

Hi.

My computer interface suddenly becomes huge. The mouse pointer, the desktop icons, etc all has became magnified and the colour resolution is very bad. This has happened before and when I tried changing the interface setting, it didnt help. Previously, I did the system restore and everything went back normal. But this time when I tried system restore, everything remains as it is, huge and ugly. I tried restroring the system to a few months back till I reached 2006, but still it wouldnt recover. Please help!

Thanks in advance,

Winnie.

Hi Winnie,

Do not fret as this is a problem many of us have had before Your best bet is to go to the website of your video card manufacturer, and download your latest video card drivers This will fix your problem 90 percent of the time You can access your video card type through your control panel Most likely it will be nvidia.com or ati.com, but make sure you check what type of card and model you have first

Good Luck!
