Right click on any open area of the desktop screen and select Screen Resolution. There should be a recommended Resolution size or keep trying different resolution till it fits the screen. Your screen size will determine your resolution. 17in 19in 22in 24in etc.

the last 1/2 of this article will run down a list of files you need to delte to get rid of this nasty little bugger. You can also download various tools to remove it, but it is dependent on your comfort level. if you are comfortable searching for files and changing a couple of registry keys, then by all means, manually is the way to go. If not, you will not have a hard time finding a tool to get rid of this

SOURCE: How do I get rid of this screen when I start up my Windows XP?

Ctrl+ F11 Pc restore option is not available on Dimension 3000 it was launched from Dimension 8400 model so you are not doing the right thing already. coming to the two os option there have been two entries createdin the boot.ini which is why you see two options please check which one works 1st or the second if you wanna get rid of this please do the following: Step 1: open my computer properties window start>my computer (right click) 7b978cb.gif
step 2: click advanced>settings under startup and recovery and uncheck the option time to display the list after selecting the appropriate os entry from the drop down.
Now if you could also clarify why you want to restore I cud give you the correct option to do so

If your PC cam with a restore CD along with the OS, I would suggest you boot with this restore CD and when prompted,insert the Original OS CD and if this works then you may recover your MBR files, i.e. you had not formatted all the drives when installing Vista. so all the best....sodeep

I hit the ctrl key and my font shrunk in my g-mail acct. How do I get it back to the original?


you can go to font and change the font altogether .... but i honestly think that when you pressed ctrl you probable accidentally also pushed the - at the same time which shrinks the size of your screen so just press ctrl + and see if that helps

Big issues with Vista on my Inspiron!


Did you try to "Restore this computer to another point in time"? Then you press F8, and choose "System Restore" then another screen asks if you want to go to safe desktop, or do a system restore, when you select system restore,another window, a bit like a calendar, and you choose a date prior to when you had problems?
Otherwise, please try this... when dell screen comes up on keyboard hit CTRL+ F11 twice only then you will see Dell pc restore by Symantec.Hit on restore and hit on i agree and select the option Restore the pc to dell factory settings and then it will restore the pc.
Otherwise you will have to obtain a Windows Vista install DVD, boot on this and repair/reinstall from That.. anyway try whats proposed and get back to me..

try doing this. Start firefox. hold down the Ctrl button. Press "-" (minus) twice and watch the screen. If it shrinks do it again dont let off the Ctrl button. Keep hitting '-' (twice) until it shrinks to a size you like.

The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear.

Compatabelity problem


Is that software are compatible with vista?
What size of memory you have in computer and you need to know that vista is very big and using 20% of memory usage of 5 gb hard drives.
Try to reinstall vista by backups and fix the errors on help and support on start up option.
