How do you get your computer screen back to normal size

You can right click on a empty space on the desktop then click properties. When the Desktop Properties window opens click the Appearance tab. Go down to the font size and you can change it to normal, large or extra large. Normal is what it should be.

You can also get there by going into the Control Panel and changing the Font size on the display. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open the display, click the Appearance tab and change the Font Size.

If that don't do what you are looking for you can click the Settings tab on the display to change the Screen Resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons and therefore the more you will get on the screen.

How to increase font size on my macbook permanently.

When you are on the finder Click View, scroll down to 'show view options' and from there you can change the font size looks on the desktop. You can even make the folders bigger.

To make the font bigger for folders open the desired folder you want and go to the view menu and like above goto the "show view options' option and when the window pops up you can adjust the font size.
I also suggest dropping your screen resolution to a lower number. That can be found by clicking the apple, going to system preferences and click displays under the hardware header. From there move the resolution down to 1280 x 800 or 1024 x 768. But for screen legibility and such I would not drop the resolution any farther than 1024 x 768.

Hope that helps!

Primary disk drive not found

Check the connection of your hard drive and make sure it's plugged properly On The Motherboard.

Is this a SATA drive? Has it ever operated properly? If worse comes to worse, you'll have to reload windows from scratch.

you might need to lower your video quality down a bit, or upgrade your Graphics card.

Adding bots to the game uses logs more memory and graphics power, how does it play online?

Every time i go onto a server on counter strike source i get this little box that says client timed out and my steam which runs my counter strike source is disconnected

you could have a few issues here, one being your modem, your firewall or your isp speed. Try rating your isp with a speed check, see if your operating where you should be and get back to me.
