Try this:
1.) Right click on the desktop screen.
2.) Select Properties.
3.) Navigate to the Appearance Tab.
4.) In the select box near the bottom under the Font Heading. Ensure it is set to Normal.
5.) Click apply to save changes.
6.) Now click on the Settings tab.
7.) On the bottom left of this box, see the heading for Screen Resolution. Try sliding the bar to the right a bit. Keep doing so to increase the detail that can be displayed.
Idealy this should be set to the maximum resolution that the screen can handle.

That should do.

Take care!

What else can I try to reset Windows 8.1 desktop from 500% back to 100%-Text too big to see?


I would use a HIGHER resolution, as this will show things in a finer perspective. The two most likely maximum resolutions on your PC are 1366x768 or 1920x1080

Tip

Basic Troubleshooting


This is a great reference tip that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

As a computer geek I come across problems all the time. I like to see how things work and that usually means messing up sometimes. Messing up isn't bad, in fact it's great! When you mess up, you usually learn from it. When you learn from your mistakes you can learn how to fix and even avoid them. Usually when you avoid your mistakes, it saves time.

So, this is where the tip starts. I’ll teach you some really quick steps that will stick to you and help you for as long as you live.

Let’s say you notice that you don’t have a sound icon in your tray, but yesterday you did. You might think, it should be on startup because it usually automatically there. What should you do? If your thinking “check Google!” you’re right, but what would you Google? What keywords would you pick to find your problem? Why would you even care to go to Google.com to check why you’re having this problem on your computer? Google is a search engine; it’s a good one too. I don’t know a single computer smart person that doesn’t mainly rely on Google. I would try and use keywords like “Missing Sound Control Icon from Tray” Browser through the results and you’ll find some good ideas which you can make a solution out of.

The problem I’m giving you is a real scenario. This problem is something I’ve come across, it’s nothing big but it really bugged me. Once I finally figured it out, there weren’t words for how happy I was. It’s not the whole point of fixing a dumb issue, but it’s the fact that I didn’t ask for anyone’s help. I, instead, used what was in front of me, my resources, and the internet. The internet is a huge library that is full of answers. I’m sure you won’t care but I should tell you how I fixed it.

Here’s my step-by-step on how I fixed it:

1. Right-click My Computer and then click Manage.

2. Click Services and Applications.

3. Double-click Services.

4. In the Services list, right-click SSDP Discovery Service, and then click Properties.

5. On the General tab, in the Startup type drop-down list, click Disabled.

6. Click OK.

If you’re wondering, Brandon, how could you have remembered those steps? I didn’t, I’ve learned to keep logs of my major errors that I have. I put all of my, what I call “Error Logs”, on my D Drive which is a 1.5 Terabyte SATA Drive. Keeping logs allows me to be semi-independent and helps me learn more about that problem that I went through.

If you were wondering “How do I keep these logs?” I simply make a template out of a simple text file (.txt) and name that text file “0.txt”. I later added an index to that file so that I can take that template, fill it out, and create a text file named “1.txt” I can take the same template and create a new text file for a new problem and then add that file to the index in the “0.txt” file. I hope that wasn’t too confusing.

Here’s my template:

(Fix Date - Month Day, Year)

Cause(s)



Excluded Error(s) or Fixe(s)

I hope this tip was helpful. If I helped you out in anyway, please help me and rate.



Thanks,

Try rebooting to see if that clears up the issue. Should. Does not mean it will not happen again if you repeat the operation that caused the BSOD. There is an issue with your OS and you might want to attempt a repair operation if possible

these HP posts are always HUGE walls of text.
that is ok but wow.
but then no photos of MESS?
must we guess that?
but if your LP has an external 15pin Video jack (d-shell type)
that uses any external display seen on Desktops
you can find out this your self
if the external works, then the internal hardware is bad.
easy no?

I need help with ibm thinkpadr40 have no idea what is going on tried somethings, blue screen keeps coming up and freezes and runs slow


If you are getting different problems at different times, they you have to start handling things slowly to exactly pin point the issue. It will be great if you can also document the error messages, when you get it, the windows version you are using etc so we can provide you more accurate steps and identify the exact issue.

First if you are using windows XP restart the computer in safe mode and try using it (if you wanted to use internet - wired) then restart the computer in safe mode networking.

Procedure to restart computer in safe mode:
Restart computer, keep tapping F8 key on the keyboard, instead of going to windows it will show up a windows advanced boot menu, where you need to use your up or down arrow key to navigate the control to Safe mode / safe mode with networking and hit enter key. this will show some commands / text on your screen and take you to safe mode.

Try using your computer in safe mode and see if your computer is giving you any error or if it freezes. If it does not give you any trouble in this mode then you computer is good, it should be the additional programs running in the normal mode that is creating the issue. we need to diagnose further to find it.

If it is freezing / gives your error message in safe mode itself, then there should be a problem with the hardware of your computer, we have to find out by eliminating the hardware one by one.

Do not worry, we can work together pin point the issue and we will help you to resolve this issue.
