Have you installed anything else on the system? Also, you might check Event
Viewer assuming that will open. Open the Start Menu, type Event Viewer in
the search box, when you see the security prompt, click continue and it
should open.

If that doesn't resolve it type CMD in Start Search on the Start Menu. When
you see CMD at the top of the Start Menu, right click, select "Run As
Administrator." When the command prompt opens, type

"sfc /scannow" without the quotes and let it run.

If that fails to resolve it, check manufacturer websites to make sure all
your device drivers are up to date, the same with all of your software, make
sure the apps are Vista compatible and that you've installed any updates.
Also, make sure you have no malware or any viruses. If all is fine you may
need to do a repair, boot from the Vista DVD and choose the repair option at
the setup screen.

After being on a few minutes, the text becomes very blurry I lowered the resolution, which makes the text bigger and helps some. There is an internal adjustment, but I don't know where??


Hi hamptonwhh,

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges. Please follow the steps below on how to adjust your screen resolution.

Windows XP
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.

2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.

3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.

4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.

Windows Vista/7
1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

Notes : When you change the screen resolution, it affects all users who log on to the computer.

When you set your monitor to a screen resolution that it won't support, the screen will go black for a few seconds while the monitor reverts back to the original resolution.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Show or hide the taskbar gl_icon_tip.png Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.
The taskbar is usually located at the bottom of your screen. It looks like this:

• If the taskbar is hidden, point to where you last saw it to show it again. If you can't remember where you last saw it, try pointing to the bottom of the screen first, and then to the side or top of the screen, if necessary. You might need to move the pointer almost off the screen to show the taskbar.

1. Open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Taskbar and Start Menu.

Screen size


Hello,

Most Likely: Your screen resolution needs to be 1024x768.
Less Likely: You have an Appearance scheme such as Large Contrast.

Solution: Access Control Panel, select Display, then Settings tab and then move the slider to the above or higher resolution.

In the Theme or Appearance tab (depending on OS) choose a generic Theme or Color Scheme.

Regards,
Worldvet
