Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

2 Answers

Vista Magnifier My laptop just all of a sudden shut down with no warning, and when I turned it back on everything was magnified. I went to the Ease of Access option, checked the magnifying option, and it was turned off. Turning it on just made the already magnified screen worse. How do I get my computer back to normal?

Best way to fix it is using "Last Know Good Configuration" option in advance boot menu by pressing F8 during the boot. If "Last Known Good Configuration" doesn't resolve the issue, You may you use System Restore option to earlier date that can be prior to the issue.
Please post if you need further assistance.

Good Luck

My screen appears to be 'zoomed in' note that this is not a resolution issue nor is it just a web browser page that i have zoomed in on using the mouse wheel. My screen was zoomed when the log in screen...

This sounds as if you have the magnifier on if you are using Windows. What the magnifier does is just what you are describing. It zooms in on part of the screen and lets you pan around the screen when you move the mouse to the edge. Unfortunately, I do not know which version you have. If you have XP, you can view this webpage for specific instructions:
If you have another version, to change it, click on Start Menu>Programs>Accessories>Ease of Access. It should be found there. Once you open it, you should be able to turn it off and go back a normal screen.
I hope this solves your problem. Let me know if it does not.

My zoom level which I have always had fixed at 150 keeps slipping back to 100 even though I customize it

Hi ianni7,

Are you referring to the zoom level in Internet Explorer? Or the zoom level in Magnifier?

When the computer is On, (fully booted), press "windows key + U", windows "utility manager" will pop up, click "Onscreen Keyboard is not running"; then from the lower menu, deselect/uncheck "Start automatically when I log in" and click "Ok". The "Utility Manager" looks like this;

This will fix your problem.

Good luck.

The letters on my computer r so small i cant read them, how can i make them bigger

You likely have your resolution too high.  I prefer my resolution high but I can read small writing easily.   To change this right-click your desktop and choose personalize then display settings  adjust to a lower resolution but try to keep the aspect ratio similar to the ratio of the monitor you are using or the image will look squished.  once you have finalized your decision you will have to tweak it using the controls on your monitor to stretch the picture out to the edge of your monitor.    Also you can use the ease of access in the control panel for an on screen magnifier, or simply increase the font size in personalize (left column) adjust font size (DPI) (dots per inch)
