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.

Computer keeps freezing or running slow what hould i do to fix it

depending on your type of system,you should consider the amount of start up programes that are running when you boot up to the desk top,
You may need to defragment your drives,and perhaps even remove some heavy or large programes.
what you need is a clean up utility....Try iobit,ASC,free,or you can get the full version,either way you will see an improvment.

What is a split-level drafting table?

This is a desk with numerous work areas and heights. There is usually a top level and a bottom level. This makes it easier to organize your documents, make room for a computer, or to have space for supplies. Sometimes, the two levels can be brought together to make one large desk. two levels means you can have a desk for sitting and also a desk for when you want to stand-best of both worlds.
