Dont know what kind of monitor you have but there should be some buttons on it to adjust things like contrast, brightness, screen size etc.. try that first

if not go to--

start -> control panel -> display -> settings -> advanced -> there should be a tab for your graphics driver software in there. try changing the screen size

I want to change my desktop background. .what is the easiest and safest site to go to for reat pictures?


Right click your mouse on an empty area of the desktop. A small menu will appear.
  1. Click on Properties [This will be Personalize on Windows Vista or Windows 7] to open the Display Properties screen window.
  2. 3Select the Desktop tab, if using Windows XP. Windows 98 users can select the Background tab.
  3. 4Choose a background. On the lower left half of the Display Properties Window, you will see Background (Win XP) or Wallpaper (Win 98). You can choose a background from the long menu list by clicking on the background/wallpaper design you want.
  4. 5Select a position. Stretch is generally the best choice but if the image you have selected is of a low resolution or an aspect ratio different from your monitor's, then Center or Tile will work best.
  5. 6Click OK to close the Display Properties Window.

Recently, my cable provider sent a tech to check out my internet service. While he was on the computer, he INCREASED the size of my screen. I didn't realize the screen had enlarged until my husband got on...


mcdevito75 here, It sound like the first tech. simply increased the zoom on your Monitor screen for his eay viewing and failed to restore it for you. Here"s how, on your screen in the lower right hand corner you should see 100% or 75%, this is the zoom, left clicl on the number and then check 100% ------ or even easier, left click on View at the top of your screen, then click zoom, now check the 100%. you can also check at View, the text size, this is the size of the letters on your screen. click on text size for large or larger or small. Hope this helps.

Have lost the sound in my window xp pc what do i need to do?


Verify software volume control settings
First verify you see a small sound icon sound3.gif or sound.jpg in the Systray (generally at the bottom right hand corner of your screen). If this icon is missing follow the below section.
Windows XP
  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.

If you mean the CD drive won't open to let you put the XP cd in then look for a small hole in the drive lid which lets a straightened paper clip gently slide in to release a catch and let the drive open.
Alternatively make a boot USB stick and copy the entire XP cd to it
