There is an opion under conrol panel, accessibility options to zoom or enlarge fonts etc. for visually impaired people.. But also I guess there might be a hot key you have hit by accident, that zooms the desk top. What model of HP? Also right mouse click the desktop, click properties & check the 'appearance' settings.. There is an option for large icons & fonts. Maybe the HP hotkeys hook into that Windows option. Rgds,

Screen resolution is too big. Unable to correct.


The resolution is set too high, or the icons are too large? If the resolution is too high, the items appear smaller. If the resolution is too low, it gives a "zoomed in" appearance, and everything is much larger.

Has this issue been present since day one, or did it just begin?
What operating system do you have?
Do you have a dedicated (PCI, AGP, PCIe) video card, or are you using the one on your motherboard?

It sounds like you need to update or re-install the drivers for your videocard. They may have become corrupted, and are disallowing your resolution to be set to your desired spec. Many videocards will reset themselves to 800x600 if there is an error with the drivers, making everything seem much larger on the screen.

My desktop icons are highlighted in colors and wen i put a wallpaper the color comes on top of it how to remove it ?


If you want to hide your icons, right click on your desktop(your screen). A window will appear and put your pointer on view. Another window will open and at the bottom you will see "show desktop icons " with a check mark. Click on this and your icons will be hidden. To get them back do it again.

My drop-down menues are normal size . My homepage MSN & Yahoo very big. Also I lost some of my icons.


You probably applied a zoom in your internet browser. That's why everything seems bigger. If you're using internet explorer, set the zoom to 100% from the bottom right corner of your explorer screen. You may also set a custom zoom if you like.

New Acer 5532 laptop; v.wide screen but not v.deep. Currently, large toolbar icons take up some 25% of the screen unecessarily - how to reduce their size down ?


Depends on which Windows version you have, unstated.

Right click on screen anywhere except other icons, go to "properties" and adjust screen res to max and also check under appearance that icons are "normal"

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

The font size on my HP Pavillion N5445 is too large. When checking the text size, it is already on smallest and is still too large.


Are all fonts too large or just icon fonts?

You could reset the screen to a higher resolution. Please note that everything will appear smaller including webpages and desktop icons.
Click Start\Settings\Control Panel
Then Click Display
When the box opens click Settings
When the new window opens you will see an adjustment called "Screen resolution" and a slider marked 'more' at one end and 'less' at the other.
Most modern monitors are set to 1024 by 768 pixels or above. Try moving your slider to a higher setting then click Apply\Ok
