    hi, i have tried changing the dpi, but because the text is so large, it is impossible to see if it has changed. I click on the 96 dpi but then you cant see the ok to click on to. (so I just press return) I have changed the theme back to vista. I have restarted the comp, but the text is still the same.

    I have gone into display settings, and a screen with monitor and a box with number 1 on it, at the bottom of the screen (i can just about see) it says generic PNP monitor on NVIDIA Geforce 7000m/ pForce 610m, I cant see if there is anyhing underneath that, as I can not move the screen any lower!

The first thing to check is the preferences for display. It sounds from what you say like it is there that the problem lies.

Right click anywhere on the desktop EXCEPT on an icon, and choose the bottom option "Personalize" from the menu that appears. On the left is an option called "Adjust font size (DPI)" start by checking that this is set to 96 and not the larger 120dpi.

You might also like to change the Theme back to Windows Vista and see if that fixes it. These options should change your screen back to the way it was.

    Okay, the next thing to check is that Windows still recognizes your video card. Compaq are owned by HP so you can download the latest drivers for your video card from hp.com.

    To check, go into Personalize as you did before, and into the bottom option - Display settings. Above the slider should be something like "Generic PnP monitor on NVIDIA MCP67M". If the slider isn't movable to the right, check to see if it says "Generic PnP monitor on (unknown device)" - this would indicate that there is something wrong with your driver.

    In that event, go to the drivers and download section of www.hp.com and give it your model number, you can find the right drivers there.

    Let me know if you still have problems.

I want to start safe mode on inpriron 11420


From what i see in your specs the Dell Inspiron 1420 came with Win Vista. I assume you have upgraded, Did you check Win 8 compatibility with your hardware? You may have exceeded the hardware components limitations. Therefore it will not run Win 8 with much sucess, and will continue to crash, Check here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/system-requirements. That said, I would use win 7 at the most.

Right click on the desktop, SCREEN RESOLUTION, lowering the resolution will increase the text size. You can also check VIEW on that menu and select large icons.

Text size is the inverse of screen resolution.

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia not working


a large number of older games do not work on vista, they are incompatible, you can either download the patch from the games site, which i see youve tried and it did not work, in this case, try to run the program in windows xp SP2 mode. to do this, fidn the application or executive file, it will have .exe at the end of the filename or will say application, then right click it, properties, compatibility, then check the box to run in compatibility mode for:, then choose for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), use those settings then try it again, if it still doesnt work then you simple can not use that game on vista. your last option you can try has a small risk of virus, only because it is user created, but seacrh the internet for a patch that allows it to work on vista. some people make their own patches to allow the program to work on vista.

Compaq presario laptop display problem


Use system restore to bring back the computer to a date before the one you started to have troubles with the screen. After this you may need to reinstall display drivers, as you installed an older version after getting in troubles.
