    Anisur,



    Your problem could be solved if you could provide the computer manufacturer and model number.

    If it is a clone or custom built system, I would need the motherboard make and model number.



    Look forward to hearing from you.

    1. I reinstalled Windows XP from restoration CD, now icons and fonts are in large sizes and there is no sound.


    Sounds like a driver problem. You will have been provided a CD with your computer, perhaps the same one you restored Windows XP from, with all of the drivers that were installed on your computer out of the box. If you install all of the drivers on there, the sound and display should revert to normal.
    If you can't find the CD, you need to find out the model of your sound and video cards and download them from the manufacturers' websites.
