It is not the issue with the service pack. You have to install the VGA (Graphic Card) driver to adjust resolution of your system. As you have not mentioned the model of your system, i suggest that you visit official support site of your PC manufacturer and download the drivers.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

How fix computer monitor stuck in low resolution


If your resolution is too low, you can change that by clicking on the Start button and then clicking on Control Panel. From the Control Panel window, click on Adjust screen resolution from beneath the Appearance and Personalization section. From the Resolution drop-down, select the highest resolution by moving the slider to the top. Your resolution should be just fine now.

To change your font size, go back to Control Panel, search for "window color" in the search box, and then click on Change window colors and metrics". You can adjust font sizes from here.

uninstall the video driver from Control panel > Add/Remove Programs. Update the XP up to SP3, reboot twice and only then install the latest available video driver if necessary (on older pc's the driver is already in XP and it will be automatically installed.

You have to check your motherboard or video card model, then search for the driver from their official website for windows xp home edition compatible. You can update sp3 before or after installing the driver of your video card! That is the reason why you ca not change the settings on your resolution because the windows xp home edition sp2 are probably no available driver for your video card. Have a nice day!

Font height is big in printed barcode. how can I adjust the size of the font?


check if the setting FORMAT CONVERT is with some numbers, please change for NONE.
This seting change the resolution from Printhead 200dpi or 300dpi or 150 dpi or none, none mins, if you have 200dpi printhead, print 200dpi resolution(small fonts). if have 300 dpi, print with 300 dpi resolution, if have 300 dpi(very small fonts) printhead, can print 150dpi(big fonts) if change this setting.
if ok, check the driver or your software.

I HAVE A 19' MONITOR FROM SAMSUNG


If the fonts are too small ..just see the resolution maybe is too high and thats why ..being a 19' monitor you should use it at 1024 x 768 resolution to be accesible with big fonts ..and still not too big..and the luminosity and contrast have to be adjusted from the monitor itself in order not to affect all the stuff you get out from the computer ...when you Modify it from the video card you change all that will run on the computer and all its properties..
So ..if it is not a issue with the resolution ...just encrease the font size from right click on the desktop and choose properties..there on the appearance you will have settings for all...just go to the advance settings inside..and you can modify the font for each bar ..for the icons..and the icons itself ans still use a high resolution ..
also you can change all fonts to a bigger value by going into the desktop properties and instead of going to the appearance go to settings ..(the last one in the right ) and there click advanced and change the DPI from 96 normal ...choose custom ..and add a percentage to encrease the fonts and icons as well all at once and the fonts too ...
For the fonts use on the browser the settings are made from the internet options ..in the browser itself..

Font to small


You have two things going on. You can set the font size to your specs, but if for some reason you change the resolution of the screen, your fonts will look really small.
My advice--check your screen resolution. If it's OK, go in and set the fonts to large.

Font sizes not accurate


I think your screen resolution had changed. For that right click on your desktop and select properties and select settings tab.

There Goto Screen Resolution and select the screen resolution to 800x600 or 1024by768.

Hope this will help
