It is likely that the correct video driver did not get installed after you performed the 'full restore'. You will need to to go to Acer's website and enter your model number in the support area to download the correct video driver. Install the driver and reboot your computer.

Screen size too large


Click the Apple logo button in the top left corner of your desktop.

Then click System Preferences.

Click Displays under Hardware.

Play with the screen resolutions there until you get what you like.

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.

Desktop screen saver was not full screensize, so i set to maximum setting 200% and now the whole thing is too big and desktop icons way too big to work with, how can I get into system to reset or...


It sounds like you changed your desktop background resolution settings and not the screensaver. Right-click on your desktop on any clear area that doesnt have an icon and if this is WinXP select properties, or if Vista select personalize. Select the settings tab and you should see a screen resolution adjustment slider that will allow you to change your screen rsolution which intur affects the size of all your icons etc. Select the size that suits you. 1080 X 786 is a good place to start. You're probably set to 800 X 600 right now.

The screen and everything on it is enlarged very big and even after changing the settings and doing a system restore it won't change


CHANGE RESOLUTION OF YOUR MONITOR. RIGHT CLICK ON EMPTY DESKTOP, SELECT property, SELECT display, AND resolution. INCREASE RESOLUTION TO 1600X1200 OR SIMILAR. PROBABLY IT IS SET NOW AT 800X600.

Restore active desktop


As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You
