    Thank you. I'm using Firefox as a browser and I didn't find a "Fit to Window" option under the View menu. But I did notice I could remove the "Zoom text only" check mark and then manipulate "Zoom" with the Crntl-+ and - keys and I could change the width on the page. So I think that's solved my problem. Thank you very much. ~ Chuck

How do I adjust the AOL screen size ?


From what I understand you need to go to your Internet Explorer, click View, then highlight Text Size and then click Medium. That should fix your welcome screen. Hope this helps.

My Dell Dimension 3000 will not work past the Dell Startup Screen. When I try to enter safe mode, three lines of text appear on the screen that include system 32.


That line of text tell you that the kernel - the core of Windows is corrupted or missing. Nothing left to do but reinstall: use the recovery cd that came with the pc when you bought it.

Gmail page too wide


Dear Chuck:

I have a Dell Dimension 2400. Those came standard with a 15 inch monitor. Go to the blank screen, right click and click on properties, then click on settings, your resolution should be set to 1024 by 768. Or click on start, then click on control panel, double click on display, then click on settings, again your resolution should be set to 1024 by 768. If this does not solve your problem, then you need to find the correct video drivers for your monitor and download them.

Text too wide for screen


If you want to increase the font size of the text on the page and you're using a scroll wheel mouse, here's a handy little trick- hold down the Control button while rolling the scroll wheel up or down. This will increase/decrease the size of the text on the screen but won't affect the graphics.

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.
