Icons and pages are too large and fuzzy

I ran DriverScanner. Now, all the icons are too large (can't be fixed with display properties), the pages are too large and the fonts are fuzzy.

Hi dldaniels first thing is you need to go to display settings click on the advance button and make sure the DPI is set to 96 this is default setting.
Now if the DPI is 96 you may have acidentaly changed the accessiblity setting,
click on the start button and go to accessories then choose accessiblity and then click on the wizard..from here you can change it back.
Now the other thing you can check once you have done that is to check that your using clear type fonts, on the display properties of the desktop by right click on blank space and going to properties, then choose the appearance tab click on effects...then make sure it using clear type.

hope that helps

How do i reduce the text and icons on my laptop display/screen


Assuming you have a Windows system:
  1. First make sure you don't have the type size and icons set to a large size. Right click on your Desktop and choose 'Personalize'. Then in the lower left choose 'Display'. Make sure that you have selected 100% as the size of text and icons. If you have, proceed to #2
  2. Make sure that you are displaying at the native resolution on your laptop. If Windows doesn't have the right software drivers (instructions) for the display it will use some generic drivers which will work but will make everything appear large and potentially slightly fuzzy. Verify the potential resolution of your laptop with HP by looking up the model on their website and then checking the screen resolution. Then right click on your Desktop and pick 'Screen Resolution' from the context menu. Verify that the resolution is the same as the HP's listed resolution. If not, change it to match. If you can't change it to match that means you don't have the correct video card driver installed on your notebook. Go to #3
  3. To install the correct video driver for your notebook, go to the HP Support site and click on 'Detect my product'. This will install some HP software that will recognize your system and load the appropriate updated software drivers for all components. You want to specifically find 'video drivers' but it will probably be OK to let others found by the website be installed. Install the video drivers and then if the screen isn't displaying at the correct manufacturer resolution, go back and repeat the instructions in step 2 to manually set it.
That should get everything displaying at the correct size.

How do you get your computer screen back to normal size


You can right click on a empty space on the desktop then click properties. When the Desktop Properties window opens click the Appearance tab. Go down to the font size and you can change it to normal, large or extra large. Normal is what it should be.

You can also get there by going into the Control Panel and changing the Font size on the display. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the display, click the Appearance tab and change the Font Size.

If that don't do what you are looking for you can click the Settings tab on the display to change the Screen Resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and therefore the more you will get on the screen.

Netbook pages to large


Try right clicking away from the icons in a blank part of the desktop in the menu left click "properties", this should take you to the familiar Windows display properties panel, click the settings tab and down and to the left you will see screen resolution my nett book works best with 1024 by 600 depending on where you are in the world it might be 1024 by 768. You shouldn't get into trouble here because normally after clicking the apply button it will show you the new screen and after 15 seconds go gack to the previous, if it is what you want click OK to keep the new setting. Good luck John

Dual monitor setup


Assuming you are using Windows Vista:

All you have to do is connect your laptop to a monitor via a VGA port (located on either the side or at the back of your laptop - it's the port with about 15 holes).

Once connected , you will need to configure how your 2nd monitor will function - as an extended or duplicate monitor. To set this you will need to go to Display Settings > and select your option.

In changing the icons to normal, did you reset the screen resolution? If not, set the resolution lower, apply, then reset it back to the original (usually 1024x768), then apply.
