    I was composing it in Printmaster Platnium 18 and saving it in pdf.

    I thinking that most of the problem is in the Printmaster program.

    I also have Vista. The fonts size has changed on me also. I have done

    35 of these and not one has saved right. When I click on print preview

    it is a jumbled mess so therefore that is of no use.

    Hope you can help.

Yes you are right that the software is not doing its best.Its a failure from Printmaster Platinum 18, check out if it is under trial period, then upgrade.
Or it might be the case with Printmaster not compatible with Vista. Otherwise use a different software.

Please vote the solution.

How do i enlarge print when it too small to read after printing

Reading what a Word Document, PDF, the printed paper? I am so curious. For printed paper, you have to go back to the old days of a magnifying glass. For Word to enlarge the text, you can use the slide at the bottom of the document for press CTRL + Mouse Wheel Scroll. In Adobe they are also CTRL +/-. That is CTRL and "+" to zoom in and CTRL and "-" to zoom out. For web browsers, both these tips should work. Tip: Always save from the web prior to printing. Even if it is a web page. Web browsers have never done real well with printing. That is why most sites give you a PDF to print from. !!! Note: DO NOT send sensitive information to the following suggestion !!! There are even web sites that will create a PDF of web content that you need printed nicely:

I would like to see an inside wiring diagram to see if I plugged something in wrong or not

If this problem is in direct relation to a Compaq Presario SR5501F desktop computer;

HP Support > Compaq Presario SR5501F > Motherboard Specifications,

The motherboard is made by ECS for HP/Compaq
ECS model number is MCP61PM-HM
HP/Compaq's name is Iris 8.

There is no wiring diagram per se to give you.
I'll have to detail the wiring connections step by step for you.
This may be a little lengthy.

On the link above you are looking at a photo of your motherboard.
There is also an illustration available.
I would like you to copy, and save them both.

Using this method you will be able to enlarge them for further clarity, of the connections to the motherboard.

Right-click on the motherboard photo. Left-click on Save Image As, in the list.
In the Save Image window that comes up, you will see the heading File name:
To the right of File name: will be c01237541.

Unless you want to search for c01237541 you may wish to do this:

Put your mouse cursor after the 1 in c01237541.
Left-click twice.
Make one space with your spacebar.

Type Compaq Presario SR5501F Mobo photo.
(Mobo stands for MOtherBOard)

You want this photo to go to your My Pictures folder.
(Windows XP. Different for Vista)
At the top of the Save Image window is the heading - Save in:
In the box to the right you should see - My Pictures

If you do Not you will have to change the destination.

Left-click on the blue down arrow to the right of the box.
In the list, left-click on - My Documents, then left-click on - My Pictures.
Now go to the bottom right of the Save Image window, and left-click on Save.

In the link, scrolling down you will see the heading - Motherboard layout
Left-click on the + sign next to Motherboard layout.
Copy and save it as you did for the motherboard photo.

In the File name: box type - Compaq Presario SR5501F Mobo Illustration.

Now all you have to do is go to your My Pictures folder (Start>My Pictures), and double-click on the photo, or illustration.
Left-click on the Zoom In icon at the bottom of the window to enlarge.
(+ sign in a magnifying glass icon)

Wiring Connections to the Motherboard:

A) Front Panel header: (Panel 1)

The Front Panel, is the plastic front of your computer where the Power On button, HarDDrive LED light, and Power On LED light is located.

The Front Panel header is the connections, or pins, on the motherboard, where the cables (Wires) go to from the Front Panel.

On the motherboard illustration it is marked as Panel 1.
(Down in the bottom right corner)

On your motherboard, Panel 1 (Front Panel header) is Black in color.
As you can see it is a rectangular block, and is placed vertically.
Has 2 columns of pins.
5 in the left column, 4 in the right column.

The Left column is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top going down, Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right column is numbered Evenly.
Starting at the top going down, Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive LED light.
(HDD activity LED)
Pin 1 is for the Positive connection ( + )

Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch.
Pin 7 is for the Positive connection. ( + )

Pin 9 is reserved, and may not be used.

Pins 2 and 4 are for the Message LED light. (LED = Light Emitting Diode)
Power On LED light.

Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.
There is No Pin 10.

If the cables (Wires) are not marked coming from the Front Panel, you will have to remove the Front Panel, and trace where they go.

You will be able to physically see where wires go to the Power On switch, Power On LED light, HarDDrive activity LED light, and so on.

B) 24-pin ATX main power cable:

Only plugs in one direction. Plugs next to the blue IDE connector on the motherboard. (To the right of the ram memory slots)

C) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.
Looks like this,

Plugs into the whitish square 4 socket hole connector on the motherboard, next to the Processor socket.
(On the motherboard illustration this connector is labeled - ATX12V1

D) Processor Fan:
Connects to the 3-pin CPU header on the motherboard. Right above the ram memory slots.

E) Harddrive:
You have a SATA harddrive. (500GB in size)
Connects to the SATA 1 header on the motherboard.
The SATA 1 header on the motherboard is Black in color.

The data interface cable has 7 pins.
Looks similar to this, (May not have a 90 degree elbow though),

The SATA power cable has 15 pins.
Looks like this,

If your SATA harddrive has a place for a SATA power cable, AND a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, DO NOT plug both power cables in!!
This will lead to damage of the SATA harddrive!

The standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable looks like this,

(The standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable connector, has had a misnomer for years as a Molex connector.
Molex was the first design implemented when this style of connector came out.
The name stuck.
It is the same as calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench)

F) Optical drives:
If you have a DVD burner drive it plugs into the SATA header 2.
(Uses the same style of SATA data interface cable, as the SATA harddrive)

If any of your optical drives are IDE, they plug into the blue IDE header, next to the ram memory slots.

This is what a flat ribbon IDE data interface cable looks like,

(You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

G) The Floppy Disk drive, (If your computer came with one), plugs into the FDD connector shown on the motherboard illustration.
(Black in color, right above the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector)

Do you need information on the USB connections?
Post in a Comment.

Schematics for motherboards can be different but most have a series of pins that those plugs are plugged into. Here is a link that will guide you through the process. The pins are labeled POWER/LED/SPEAKER if you look closely. Hope this helps.

Where can I find the specs so I can get a new RAM chip?

Working computer, and internet capable?

I would suggest using the free, tiny, little program, CPU-Z, (From, and you don't even have to open your computer case.

Information about CPU-Z on, and a view of the GUI used by CPU-Z.
(Graphical User Interface),

(You can click on the screenshot at the upper right of this page, to enlarge it. This is what the GUI of CPU-Z actually looks like)

This is the CPU-Z homepage,

To download, go to the upper left of the page under the small purple heading - Download Latest version,
and left-click on - CPU-Z 1.53 setup (English)

A small window will come up. Left-click on Save File.
Where will this file go?

If you have your downloads set to save to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), it will go there, or a sub-folder - Downloads, that is in My Documents.

If you do Not have your downloads set to save to your My Documents folder, this file will go to your desktop screen.

In either place, when you see the file name, cpuz_153_setup.exe,
Double-click right on it.

A Microsoft 'Squawk Box' will come up.
'Warning this software does not have a digital certificate, on, and so on.

This is because the makers of CPU-Z, do not wish to pay big bucks to Microsoft, every time someone downloads their software for free!

The software is okay, I assure you.
Click on Run.

Follow the instructions. (It has been a while since I installed CPU-Z. I use it on all of my computers. You may have to click on - Accept, I do not remember at this time)

Why do I use CPU-Z, and recommend it?

1) It's free, truly works well, there is no malware attached, no junk mail comes with it, and it only works when I click on it.

(Isn't in your Start Menu to slow your computer down. You have to manually click on the CPU-Z icon on your desktop screen, in order for the program to run)

2) Not only will you get in-depth information about what ram memory you are currently using, and what ram memory slot/s it's located in, you will also get in-depth information about the rest of your hardware system resources.

A) Processor (CPU)
B) Mainboard (Motherboard)
C) Graphics

Plus what Operating System, build, and version.

My sources indicate, it uses an Intel Pentium 4 that has a Maximum frequency rate of 3.04GHz, 1MB of L2 cache, and is the Model 524.

Uses DDR Sdram, which has 184 gold plated contact pins, But, my sources could be wrong. (DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins)

If you need, or would like more information about CPU-Z after you have it downloaded, and running, please state so in a comment.

F11 key won't enlarge to a full screen

Can you place your mouse on an open area of the screen you would like to enlarge, right click the mouse and see if Lock toolbars has a check mark next to it...If it does, remove the check mark. Then go to View and click on Full Screen...Hopefully that will enlarge the screen.

If it does, click on the F11 button and see if it then shrinks the screen and click on F11 again to see if it enlarges it...Providing it does both, your problem could now be resolved...Either way, post back here and let us know.

I publish a veterans newsletter on Adobe Pagemaker 6.0 Problems: lost page boxes & scale at bottom of page and can't restore same. Also, can't just click there and go to another page - have to go above and...

Thank you for your service! And thanks for the effort to produce a newsletter.

I haven't used Pagemaker for a while, but let's give it a try. On the menu bar at the top of the PM Window you should see File, Exit and so on. Look for View or Options. Check each of the drop down menus to see if there is a STATUS BAR option. That's what the bottom bar is normally called. It may be as easy as checking it so tht it shows. You may need to look through the menus for another 'options' sub menu to find it. The Adobe search wasn't very helpful on this topic.

Please let me know what you find.
