    I forgot to mention that I am running, not by choice, vista home. At any rate, I bumped up the resolution and it looks better but not like it used to. The wireless issue still remains. I can't even find the wireless hardware on my laptop anymore. This one is confusing. Any suggestions?

How do i reduce the text and icons on my laptop display/screen


Assuming you have a Windows system:
  1. First make sure you don't have the type size and icons set to a large size. Right click on your Desktop and choose 'Personalize'. Then in the lower left choose 'Display'. Make sure that you have selected 100% as the size of text and icons. If you have, proceed to #2
  2. Make sure that you are displaying at the native resolution on your laptop. If Windows doesn't have the right software drivers (instructions) for the display it will use some generic drivers which will work but will make everything appear large and potentially slightly fuzzy. Verify the potential resolution of your laptop with HP by looking up the model on their website and then checking the screen resolution. Then right click on your Desktop and pick 'Screen Resolution' from the context menu. Verify that the resolution is the same as the HP's listed resolution. If not, change it to match. If you can't change it to match that means you don't have the correct video card driver installed on your notebook. Go to #3
  3. To install the correct video driver for your notebook, go to the HP Support site and click on 'Detect my product'. This will install some HP software that will recognize your system and load the appropriate updated software drivers for all components. You want to specifically find 'video drivers' but it will probably be OK to let others found by the website be installed. Install the video drivers and then if the screen isn't displaying at the correct manufacturer resolution, go back and repeat the instructions in step 2 to manually set it.
That should get everything displaying at the correct size.

You can increase the size of text by pressing control + or - buttons press control button first. Also there is zoom in the tools section and also you can increase the size of text in the control panel or the web page under tools sections of most browsers. If we new the browser or what you text is small in or even if it was small every where you can change the resolution size of your Windows. Win 7 you can incease text by going to control panel click on display once there go to where it says increase your text size. Not sure what your operating system is either. So assuming it is Win 7 I hope that this assists you. John

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa


Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.

WiFi not recognized on Compaq laptop


this can happen sometimes, just go to network connections in control panel, right click on the wireless icon and click dissable (or press the rellevant button on your notebook) Restart pc and then right click on the icon again and select enable. There should be an icon in your taskbar, right click and select view network connections, and then see if your router is listed and click connect.
