On the web, both Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, I can scroll up and down, but not side to side. You can see the beginnings of pictures, and text that goes out to the right, but not the rest of it. This only happened within the last couple of days. I have small children. A couple of days ago I was holding my 5 month old, while I was surfing and she was trying (1/2 way successfully) to get at the keys, then my 2 year old snuck up and grabbed a few keys, screens flashed in rapid succession, I have NO IDEA what they did, if they got at some Function keys or what, but now my screen is funky. I can view my minimize and close buttons on the top right, but my Google toolbar extends out and I can no longer see all of the buttons on it to the right. If I open too many tabs in Firefox, and can't quite reach all of them. I've played with the screen resolution, and that doesn't help. Scroll lock isn't on, I've hit each F key one at a time to see if anything changes. If a website isn't contained I have to copy the whole text and paste it to a word document in order to read it all. I have no IDEA what happened! Anyone help?

Re: Cant see right side of screen
If your kiddo "tinkered" on the keyboard, then it would look like the screen resolution or refresh rate was changed. The refresh rate is found under the display Advanced ---> Adapter ----> List all modes. Common refresh rates are 60, 72, 75, 85 and so forth, measured in hertz. These values are paired with the screen rssolutions, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768 and so forth. Selecting one of these modes will hopefully get you back to seeing the full display.
Some video card driver/utility software has the capability of actually adjusting horizontal position left or right. This adjustment should also be accessed in the display properties.
If the kiddo tinkered with the monitor buttons, then you must access the particular adjustment having to do with display horizontal width and horizontal position. One of the buttons gets you into the menu mode, another to the proper adjustment selection, from there two buttons are used to increase or decrease width, or move display left, move display right.

Try using a different browser it may work better for you or you can try starting Internet Explorer in safe mode to see if it is a plug-in that is hanging up the website.
Follow the instruction with in this link to start Internet Explorer in safe mode: Knowledge Base
If the website functions has expected under safe mode you will need to deactivate the problem plugin or just reset Internet Explorer. Here is a link on how to reset Internet Explorer: Reset Internet Explorer settings
If the above does not help you narrow down what is happening. Make sure that your computer is fully up-to-date, restart the machine, and see if the problem still occurs.
Which web browser are you using? If you use Firefox or Internet Explorer, it is a bit different. For Firefox, click on Tools/options, on the General Tab, you will find the place to put back the Google home page.
Sounds like you are having problems with your Internet connection speed.You could try some of these tips..
Click Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections. Select "Internet Options." Under Check for newer versions of stored pages, click "Automatically." Under browsing history, click "Settings." If you're using dial-up, set the number under Disk Space to Use to between 250 and 1024 megabytes (MB). If you're using a DSL or cable connection, set it between 50 and 75 MB. Click "OK."
Select "Delete" under Browsing history. Click "Delete files..." under Temporary Internet Files to clear your browser cache. Click "Delete cookies..." to remove all cookies from your hard drive.
Disable any browser add-ons you don't need. In Internet Options, click "Programs." Click "Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer." Select the name of the add-on you don't want to load, and select "Disable" under Settings at the bottom of the dialogue box. Avoid deleting ActiveX controls as this will most likely cause the browser to prompt you each time you encounter content on the web, such as Flash animations, that use that control.
Switch to a faster browser. While Internet Explorer is the most popular browser, it often causes pages to load slowly. Download a free browser such as Firefox, Opera or Chrome to get a quick speed boost to your browsing.
Disable images in your browser. To disable images in Internet Explorer, open Internet Options and click the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down to "Multimedia" and uncheck "Show Pictures." To disable them in Firefox, click Tools > Options in your browser window and select "Content." Uncheck the box beside "Load images automatically." To disable images in Opera, open the arrow beside the camera icon at the bottom of your browser, and select "No images." To browse with Google Chrome without images, right click on the Chrome shortcut and place the switch "-disable-images" without quotes after the last quotation mark in the path of the file.
Disable active content if you're still experiencing a problem with your browsing speed. Return to the "Advanced" tab in Internet Options. Uncheck the boxes beside "Play animations in webpages" and "Play sounds in webpages."
Most likely it has somehow been marked as a rogue website by someone who added that website to the restricted websites in your web browser security settings.
You can find out by,
1. First right click on the IE explorer icon on your desktop, and then select "Internet Options" at the bottom of the drop down menu.
2. Then select the "Security" tab.
3. You should see a zone box with "Internet", "Local Intranet", "Trusted Sites", and "Restricted Sites".
4. Select the "Restricted Sites" and then select the "Sites" button right under the zones box and the restricted sites will then be displayed.
5. You should see two boxes, an "Add This Website To The Zone" and "Websites:" (do not add that web site that you are on to the restricted zone unless you want that web site to be restricted).
6. Scroll down through the list of restricted websites in the "Websites" box and see if you can locate Facebook on the restricted sites list, and if you find it then select it and then select the "Remove" button, then select "Apply" and then "OK" and then you should have access to that website again.
to change the lettering of titles, right click on the desktop and click properties and then go to appearance. to change the font of a webpage, hold down the Ctrl button and use the scroller on the mouse to scroll up to make it bigger, or down to make is smaller. (*Note- I use Firefox, and I do not know what to do on Internet Explorer. I am assuming it would be the same for Safari. I do not know about Google Chrome or any other browsers)
Have you tried this? In Internet Explorer, use View > Text Size to alter. Also, if you use a scroll mouse, it is possible for that to adjust your size (by holding down the Ctrl button while scrolling up or down).
