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.

Windows 32 is corrupt


Try to start on SAFE mode. If you can do that, then try to backstep with the restore function found in accesories, system tools, restore. Use a restore point that is back a month or so.

Windows xp boots but the desktop will not come up


Hi,
Log in using SAFE MODE. While laptop boots, press F8 and it will prompt for which mode to login. Select 'SAFE MODE'. Once logged in try to restore the OS to a previous good restore point.
If you've a backup of the registry key, it will help better. Just restore the registry from the backup instead of going for an old restore point.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx
