Re: will not hold settings on monitor size or color mouse...
Check you graphic card is connected properly and does not have any problems. Go to Control Panel>system>hardware>device Manager and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark next to your graphics card. If there is try right clicking on it and go to properties, then go to update driver. If this does not help or there is no problems with your graphics card, and this is only a recent problem it is possible that any new software or hardware that you have added may be conficting somewhere and causing graphics errors, to find and eliminate the problem, try uninstalling anything that you have added last, then try to reboot and set your display settings as you like them, if this works then you have found the problem, if it does not work, continue to uninstall the next thing that you added etc.. until you find the conflicting problem. Once you have found and eliminated the problem, you can add the other programs that you previoulsly removed. If you do find the problem and it is a software or hardware issue let me know and I will see if i kind find a solution for you, for your version of windows

depending on which you have some monitors have adjustment buttons on the front panel or just under the front panel if so should be a menu button with possibly 3 other buttons one to move the creen inside the monitor others to expand and reduce the size

For windows 7 you have to change the power settings and stop it from hibernating.Go to control panel. Go to System And Security. Go to power options / Change when the computer sleeps and change that setting to never. It gets locked in a perpetual loop when it hibernates and locks up..
You probably know about adjusting the monitor display size by right clicking on a blank area of the desktop, choosing properties, settings and moving the slider towards the left. 800x600 will make everything very large. (XP instructions)
You can also get there via the control panel, display, settings.
While on that page, you can click appearance and change icon size.
It might be your setting for display is at the minimum. Just set in slowly for higher setting until you got what that fits for you. On desktop(windows) right click your mouse, then choose personalize/properties, then select display properties. Adjust the setting according to your taste. Also adjust it on your monitor setting if it needs help.
Do the icons look ok when you can see them? It sounds like your resolution may be way too high for the monitor. It loses sync and blanks the screen rather than show a lot of mess.
Boot your windows in safe mode (tap F8 before it gives you the progress bar.. just keep tapping it until you get a boot menu)
Everything should look big, but the monitor shouldn't cut out. Go to your display properties and set it to the lowest setting. (even if you can't move the slider, just click it once) Then OK and restart.
If that works, you should be in normal Windows with a horrible resolution. Go back to display settings and set it ONE STEP higher. Apply and have a look. If it's good, go another step, and repeat.
many answers to this question , depending on monitor size and browser , a
very good work around is to hold the control key on keyboard and roll
your mouse wheel to resize the page your viewing . what is your monitor size and it resolution setting and what browser are you using ? so its possible to walk you thru setting adjustments.
Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.
