The action you took to fix your computer by resetting it has reset the screen resolution to what sounds like the XP default.

To adjust the screen resolution follow this set of instructions-

First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box, if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

My hp lap top runs windows 8 and it doesn't accept my password , it gives me a hint my birth month and year but no luck. What do i need to do?


On another machine, try resetting your msn/hotmail password. Microsoft recently integrated all of these passwords into one unit. Once you change those passwords, make sure the laptop is connected to the internet and try again. It should go through.

This could be a problem with the graphics drivers. Go to the Toshiba website, and get the latest drivers for you PC, this should solve the problem. If this doesn't solve it, than it looks like the screen / graphics controller / GPU is failing.

First I would replace the connection cord to the computer that is not working. Try switching the cords to test them. The router may have a reset button. Turn the router off for at least three minutes, and try again.

Packard bell lap top


Packard Bell only seem to have a european site from what I can tell. If your wife can understand the language, check out the belgium site for W3903 by clicking here and see if you go through the troubleshooter, whether they would be prepared to repair it from a non-european shipping address. If they would not, it's not likely you'll find anyone who deals with it, as Packard Bell seems to be an exclusively european brand.
