Display reverts to Extra large icons and font

After my PC goes into sleep mode, I tap any key to bring it back up, the password menu bar is now three times larger than it normally is. I put in my password an my desk top comes up with icons that are three times their normal size. If I open a window, the fonts are extra - extra large.
I have to reboot to get it all back to normal and then my desktop icons are scattered all over the desk top...whats going on? I'm running on Vista.

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.

On the bottom ther is two Zz what is it and what dose it do also how do i turn it off fn + f1 is not working


The zz mean that the computer is in sleep mode. Pressing the fn+F1 keys actually induces the sleep mode for your pc. To turn off sleep mode,follow these instructions.

1. Go to the task bar in the lower right corner of your screen.

2. Right -click on the battery icon and select Power Options.

3. This will bring up the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options window.

4. On the left hand side of the window, select "Change when the Computer Sleeps"

5. This will bring up the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings window with options for different settings on the battery and plugged in.

6. Click on the arrow for the drop down menu next to Put the Computer to Sleep>Select Never (last option) do this for both plugged in and battery mode if this is your choice.

7. Click on Save Changes.

I have an HP DV9000 laptop and did a presentation yesterday. When I arrived at the site I had to attach the display to an LCD projector. I connected the project via a porft connector, I believe that...


I think it's probably FN+F8 that may do this on the HP laptops. The key should have a little icon on it in the same color as the function key (typically blue) that will toggle the screen from the laptop screen to the external. There are usually 3 modes to this toggle
1. Laptop screen only
2. External screen only
3. Mirrored on laptop screen and external screen

So try toggling with the FN+F8 key combination.

Also you can probably start up in safe mode to disable the external VGA toggle.

When you see the HP Splash screen, start tapping the F8 Key to bring up the boot menu. From there choose safe mode and see if you get the video back in safe mode....After that reboot and see if it will bring up the video in normal viewing mode.

Good Luck

When i switch my computer on, i only see the aspire series display on my screen.i cant see any of the desktop icons and even the start botten and all the icons bellow.


Windows has eaten itself - again.
You need to enter via the 'Safe Mode' to try to locate the problem.
As soon as you hit the power button, start tapping first F5 and if that doesn't work, reboot and tap F8. Once of these should bring up a short menu with a couple of selections; choose the 'Safe' mode. This limits the number of files loaded during boot and is mostly successful in giving you limited access.
Try this and give us a shout back how it goes.
