There is not much that you have given us to work with here, but what i'm assuming you are describing is a resolution issue.

There are a few different resolutions that a computer will typically have depending on its age and its graphics card.
those are the typically resolutions for a basic system, those with super graphics card can go much higher.

You first off might want to see if you just need to up the settings... you can do this by....

1. right click on any empty space on your desktop and click 'properties' on the menu that pops up.
2. click the tab that says 'settings' and it will bring you your resolutions.
3.bump it up from whatever it is set to (640x480 -> 800x600 or 800x600 -> 1024x768) then click apply.
4. a window might pop up saying it is changing your resolution and asks you if you would like to keep it the new way and it will give you 15 seconds to respond yes or no before it reverts back to the prior settings.

This should fix your problem. otherwise you may need to reinstall your graphics cards via a driver download from the manufacturers website and it should have a self-installing file that will do all of the tough work for you.

If your problem seems to have nothing to do with the possibilities I just gave you please share more details about when the problem occurs, things you have tried to do to fix it that have failed. etc.

Compaq desk top screen to large

Right click your desktop and click resolution. Adjust it so that it is set to the maximum possible (native) and click apply. If you're talking about metro, you should be able to scroll scroll to reach the other icons. You can also adjust icon screen size if you go to the desktop, hold the control key and scroll using a wheel, or right click and change icon size.

My desk top pc monitor is flickering and a buzzing noise is coming from the lead in the back of the monitor and keep getting a pink tinge to the screen.what is causing this.

It sounds like your thin screen monitor's fluorescent (ccfl) back light or associated "inverter" is going to fail very soon.

If either fail, the screen will be black. If you look close - you'll see images on the screen - but because the fluorescent lamp or inverter has failed, there will be no back light source.

You can replace the lamp, inverter or both yourself - or you can send it out for repair. Usually, the yourself route is the only financially feasible option - unless the monitor is a large, expensive type. You should google your monitor's make and model along with "ccfl" "inverter" to learn the options available to you.

Good luck!

When I switch my windows XP Home Edition on instead of the usual gradual build up to Desk Top & icon programmes etc. I get the usual large black screen but instead of the windows motif appearing I get...

The results you are seeing are actually from the monitor itself. It's telling you the vertical and horizontal sync frequencies to help you troubleshoot your lack of display.

You'd usually see this happen when someone has set the resolution too high, and the monitor just can't handle it.

Power up, and keep tapping F8 until you get a Windows boot menu. Choose "safe mode", let it boot to windows. Go to display properties, and then settings. The slider for the resolution will now be right down. (left-most). Click it once, so that the apply button becomes valid. Hit apply and let it restart.

You should now boot to Windows normally, but with a very low resolution. Go back to display settings and bump it up one step at a time, using the apply button. (which will revert back one step if you don't hit "yes" within 20 seconds).

That way, you can find a resolution that looks right, but isn't too high for your screen.

HP laptop desktop screen seems to be zoomed in . all icons and wallpaper seem to appear quite large .

There is an opion under conrol panel, accessibility options to zoom or enlarge fonts etc. for visually impaired people.. But also I guess there might be a hot key you have hit by accident, that zooms the desk top. What model of HP? Also right mouse click the desktop, click properties & check the 'appearance' settings.. There is an option for large icons & fonts. Maybe the HP hotkeys hook into that Windows option. Rgds,
