Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
I purchased my Dell monitor a year ago and from the very beginning, some websites displayed differently than on other computers. The problem is that the images and fonts are much much larger than they should be. I have tried changing the size of the text to the smallest to no avail. I called Dell 3 times about this problem and each time they told me there was nothing wrong. I work on several different computers (one at my place of work) and they all display the familiar websites I frequent the same (normal)way. Also, on certain websites, such as Yahoo home page, the lines and outlines are missing on my Dell screen.
This sounds like your resolution is set too low, right click on your desktop and select properties Choose the settings tab from the window that appears, then you should be able to see a slider that tells you your screen resolution. This is most likely set to 640 x 480, the setting you want should be in the region of 1024 x 768 If you are unable to change this setting, you need to check that your display adapter drivers are installed properly in "Device Manager"
