LAPTOP to TV Connection

Many people today want to connect their computer to a TV. Most HDTVs today have a VGA input for computer hookup. Most laptops also have a VGA output for external display. Using a male to male VGA cable, the computer can use a HDTV for a display. Sound is connected using a 3.5mm audio cable. See this web page for complete details. or this webpage

The screen resolution setting determines how much information is displayed on the display screen. It is measured horizontally and vertically in pixels. At lower screen resolutions, such as 640 x 480, fewer items will fit on the screen, but they will be larger. At higher resolutions, such as 1600 x 1200, more items will fit on the screen but they will be smaller. The resolution options will vary with each computer based on the video card device, monitor size, and video & monitor drivers. If the screen looks distorted or fuzzy, then you may have an incorrect screen resolution size set for your monitor. In Windows you can change the screen resolution to match the TVs capabilities.

How do I increasse the size of the font?

You can make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You can do this without changing the screen resolution of your monitor or laptop screen. This allows you to increase or decrease the size of text and other items on your screen while keeping your monitor or laptop set to its optimal resolution.

You can adjust the screen size by changing the Screen Resolution.

Dialog box is too big for screen.

Try changing the scanning resolution before running the scanner. There's usually a utility program with every scanner you purchase that allows you to do that.
Unless you're a professional photographer who needs to blow up a standard size picture to a poster or bill board size, you may only need 100-200 dpi resolution.
This will create smaller files that may overflow your screen size, but are manageable.
Good luck!

My acer aspire screen gets small while surfing the net.

This problem can be caused by not having installed the correct video driver.
The screen resolution needs to be set higher.

Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the Screen resolution to 1024X768 or higher. If you can't change the screen resolution then most likely you need to install or re-install the video driver.

Dell C840 Increasing resolution increase screen size and vice versa

Laptops when running in non native resolutions sometimes tend to use a small area, so that the bluring of text is not noticeable. The reason is that laptop text is only sharp in its native resolution, and in your case the possibility is that your native resolution is 1600x1200 (If you can post the exact model or a link with your machine configuration, I can confirm what the native resolution is).

However you can make the icons and text larger, the best way is to and change the font size in windows (display settings) from the normal to large or extra large. This makes all the fonts much larger and easy on the eye, and it also will keep the text large as you are still running it in native solution mode.
