It sounds like the motherboard has burned out, you need to either call the place that you bought the computer from, or call the manufacturer and see if they can send you a new one. It is also possible that your hard drive has also malfunctioned as a result, so be careful, as you could easily, loose all of your data. Also ask your kids what they did to it, as this will help me figure out the real problem for you.

When im on browser everthing large and i pressed something on accident on setting while i was on internet and it wont go back to norman please help

If you mean you pressed something and everything you see now is LARGER... I've done that often. Easy fix.... hold down the "CONTROL" or "CTRL" as is is on my computer.... and while holding it down... hit the - (minus key one time). If still to big hit the key again while still holding down the ctrl key. The same can be accomplished to make things larger.... by doing the same thing.... (holding down the control key (ctrl) and hitting the + key one time. (or two times to make it smaller. Hope this fixes the problem.

My screen of computer is so big the contents are enlarged my kid has pressed some buttons pls help

Hi nayyarshelly,

I like to help you regarding your concern having big Icons on your desktop, you mentioned that your kid accidentally pressed something on the machine that made everything big, See steps below to changes the Icons or your systems desktop settings.

  • First the system should be turned ON and logged in to Windows, I am assuming that you have Windows7 on your computer.
  • On the keyboard Hold down the CTRL button while holding down the CTRL key on the mouse scroll, scroll backwards this should make things smaller again.
  • If the screen on the Internet is also big do the same thing while your Internet Explorer is open this should change the size of the text / pictures anything on the Internet explorer.
  • But if the above does a different function from what you are experiencing then I believe that you are experiencing some changes in the resolution of the screen if everything is Enlarged.
  • Click on Start then on the search bar type in display, a list will show look for Display then click on it to open up the Display window then click on Adjust resolution.
  • The resolution on your screen depends on how big the LCD screen is
  • On the Resolution page you can pretty much check each resolution on the list that will be better to you, then click on Apply lower right then OK to apply settings on this page.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

E-machine is locked up

Try to reboot the machine in safe mode. This is generally done with the F8 key. To do this...start computer, make sure F lock key light is on and hold down the F8 function key. It will ask whether you want to start in several different ways: Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, Normal, etc. Try Safe Mode. Go to Start>Control Panel>System. Under System Properties>Device Manager and look for Yellow exclamation points. Delete all of the exclamation points (make sure you have your original system disk). The video camera will probably be listed. Hope this helps.
