(assuming you have windows)
it sounds like you need to get a driver for your video card. right click on my computer and select manage. then go to device manager. the model number will either be under display adapters or under unknown devices. if you can't find it go and download siw. under that program go to devices and look for your video card info in the two aforementioned places.

the next step is to go and download drivers for your video card. go to the cards manufactures web site or just put the info into Google. they will be located under drivers or support. download. scan with an anti-virus and install.

When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

My screen of computer is so big the contents are enlarged my kid has pressed some buttons pls help


Hi nayyarshelly,

I like to help you regarding your concern having big Icons on your desktop, you mentioned that your kid accidentally pressed something on the machine that made everything big, See steps below to changes the Icons or your systems desktop settings.

  • First the system should be turned ON and logged in to Windows, I am assuming that you have Windows7 on your computer.
  • On the keyboard Hold down the CTRL button while holding down the CTRL key on the mouse scroll, scroll backwards this should make things smaller again.
  • If the screen on the Internet is also big do the same thing while your Internet Explorer is open this should change the size of the text / pictures anything on the Internet explorer.
  • But if the above does a different function from what you are experiencing then I believe that you are experiencing some changes in the resolution of the screen if everything is Enlarged.
  • Click on Start then on the search bar type in display, a list will show look for Display then click on it to open up the Display window then click on Adjust resolution.
  • The resolution on your screen depends on how big the LCD screen is
  • On the Resolution page you can pretty much check each resolution on the list that will be better to you, then click on Apply lower right then OK to apply settings on this page.
I hope that this will be of help regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

My words in my compt. are so small i cant even read my websites well.my kids played wiyh it and they shranked all the words.can u help?


Assuming you have a MS Windows OS. There are a couple of ways to remedy this situation. Option one is to change the screen resolution by right clicking on the desktop screen and selecting Properties and then Settings. Change the Screen Resolution to something lower than the current setting. This will cause everything to enlarge on the screen. Option 2 is to just change the font size as the standard. Right click on the desktop screen and select Properties. Select Appearance and change the Font Size to Large Fonts or Extra Large Fonts. If you are trying to change the font in Internet Explorer then choose View/Text Size, select Larger or Largest. That will change only the fonts inside Internet Explorer.

On some sites where a password or a payment amout is required,the box is too small and dashes enter instead of numbers


Are you using the numbers keypad on your keyboard, but you have not set NUM LOCK on? You get no characters or odd characters when you type this way.
Passwords usually do not display the actual characters in order to avoid prying eyes from learning what your password is. This is normal.
If you have trouble seeing very small text, and if you're using Vista, try the Accessibility Options or Ease of Access from the Control Panel. These allow you to selectively enlarge a certain area of the screen, or you may wish to change the resolution of your monitor in order to see less of a desktop, but larger text and icons. Try Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Adjust Screen Resolution.
If you would like to keep your high resolution but still have trouble reading small text, try the Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Personalization and change the font size from 96 to 120 DPI (dots per inch).
Good luck!
