Hey there, lets see if we can fix this. First of all have you made any changes inyour software at all? strange how your screen shrunk. If you right click desktop, click settings, you want to move the slider on the bar to the left to increase the size. as for the wireless, this may take a bit to figure out. If you are not seeing any icon at all for it in network connections, chances are you have some driver issues is the wireless working? go to the following link and put in your operating system and install the wireless drivers.

also go to device manager and see if the wireless adapter is listed there. right click my computer=> properties=> hardware=> device manager=> plus sign by network devices. right click on the adapter if you see it, make sure it says it is working and enabled. let me know what you find out so far.

    does your wireless work. as far as your screen you tried to reduce the resolution? this will make it larger. It sounds like you may need to take a trip to microsoft update and check for updates. alwayys do a custom install so you can see what you are doing. check for network or wireless updates. also check for "zero wireless" update

  • seth veloso Jul 19, 2009

    to check status of zero wireless click start, run tyype in cmd then hit enter. in the command prompt type sc query wzcsvc and hit enter. see if it says running under state

  • seth veloso Jul 19, 2009

    have you gone to windows update? You still have not answered if your wireless is working or not

  • seth veloso Jul 19, 2009

    f you have installed the appropriatte drivers from sony and still
    cannot see the wireless connection in network connection, you have a
    bad wireless card. There may be a chance that if you remove it, your
    screen will go back to normal.

Gmail problems small fonts to small

Reduce / Increase Text Size on My Gmail

Between the message list, search bar, labels and chat window, GMail's web interface displays a lot of information.

If your web browser is displaying all of these items in a large font, they may not fit comfortably on your screen.

Fortunately, you can easily change your web browser's text size on Gmail to ensure that all of the components fit.

Alternatively, you can use a special GMail Labs feature to change the default text size for all of the emails that you compose.

Navigate to your GMail inbox in your web browser.

Hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and press the "-" key. Your web browser will shrink all of the text on the current web page.

You can repeat this step to shrink the text even more.

Hold "Ctrl" and press "+" to increase the text size if you shrink it too much.
Gmail Default Font

Navigate to your GMail inbox and click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Select "Labs" from the drop-down menu.
Scroll down to "Default Text Styling" and click "Enable."
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."
Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and select "Mail Settings." Click the "TT" icon in the "Default Text Style" section. Select "Small."

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes." Your new email messages will automatically use GMail's small text size.

My writing is so small i can't read any thing on my computer because of this i can't read anthing you write back so can someone call me at 901-283-0239

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

My display resolutin is too small, thatswy my screen shows very small as compared to monitor size....!! what can i do? the H size and V size is correct..!!

You probably know about adjusting the monitor display size by right clicking on a blank area of the desktop, choosing properties, settings and moving the slider towards the left. 800x600 will make everything very large. (XP instructions)

You can also get there via the control panel, display, settings.

While on that page, you can click appearance and change icon size.

Restore active desktop

As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You
