In changing the display settings did you change the resolution? If not, then set the resolution to a lower setting, apply, then set it back to where it was. If you've done this, then uninstall the video drivers from the device manager, and reboot. This will fix any driver glitch that may be causing it. At this point, if the problem persists, connect an external monitor and ty adjusting the resolution on it. If you cannot adjust it on the external then the video car has malfunctioned, if you can, then check Acer's support site for any updated video drivers, or patches for the current.

Print too small


If you are using something like a BROWSER (IE, Chrome, etc) on the keyboard hold down CTRL and press ONCE the + button. Does this repeatedly until the font size is larger.

Please note this will NOT increase font on GRAPHIC text as those are set graphics and do not zoom.

For windows computers go to CONTROL PANEL and select APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION

From there under DISPLAY select "Make Text and Other Items Larger or Smaller" Play with the settings within there until you get the font large enough for you to see.

I would like to display the date also at the right bottom corner of my computer. The time is already displayed there.


Which operating system do you have ?
The Window's taskbar organizes open and running programs, provides a quick way to access application shortcuts, and gives easy to access to important computer functions and utilities via the system tray. Most users of Windows center their workflow around the Window's task bar for its convenience and ease of use. With the clock function automatically enabled, users can add the date to their task bar while increasing the space for more application shortcuts.

Add The Date To The Taskbar In Windows XP/Vista Right-click on your Window's taskbar and click "Lock the taskbar" option to remove the check mark next to it and unlock your taskbar. If there is no check mark next to it, do not click it as your taskbar is already unlocked. Move your cursor to the top edge of the Start menu and wait for it to change into a double arrow. Click and hold the left mouse button and drag your mouse upwards until the taskbar physically changes in . When it does, it will add the day and the date under the time. Add The Date To The Taskbar In Windows 7 Right-click on the Window's taskbar and select "Properties" from the resulting menu. Click the check box next to "Use Small Icons" to disable the option. The icons will get slightly larger and the date will appear under the time. Click "Apply" followed by "Ok" to save your changes and exit the window.

How do I make my font and text size bigger?


If you want to make font and text larger in a Word document, just look at the taskbar and click font pull-down window (usually the default is Times Roman) and pick whatever font you want, then click the pull-down window (usually the default is 12) and pick a larger size.
Or you need to make a display adjustment. Click Start, Click Control Panel, Click Personalization, click Display Settings, choose Resolution up or down which will adjust icon and font size on your computer.
Or click start, Control Panel, Personalization then:
  • In the left pane, click Adjust font size (DPI). If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  • In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)-make text more readable, and then click OK.

    • To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)-fit more information, and then click OK.

    To see the changes, close all of your programs, and then restart Windows.

    Hp director does not open when i click on the icon


    Hi,

    After installing (MS IE 7 or MS IE 8) browser on the computer that is connected to the HP product,This issue occurs on some HP products. The MS IE 7 or 8 browsers might be incompatible with HP Director
    Follow these steps to use a workaround to open HP Director each time you use the software. These steps must be repeated each time you use HP Director.  

    1-Open HP Director using one of the following methods:
    From the desktop : On your computer's desktop, look for the HP Director icon ( ), and then double-click it. 
    From the Windows taskbar : Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP or Hewlett-Packard folder, and then click HP Director .
    Although HP Director does not appear to be open , it is open and loaded into the computer's memory, but it does not open in a new window as usual.
    2-Without navigating to another open window, press Alt and Space bar at the same time. 
    The Shortcut menu displays near the top-left corner of the computer.
    Figure 1: Shortcut menu

    If the Shortcut menu does not open, repeat steps 1 and 2 until it does.
    3-Select Minimize from the Shortcut menu. 
    HP Director displays (minimizes) as an item on the taskbar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
    If HP Director does not minimize, click Minimize again until it does.
    4-Click the HP Director icon on the taskbar ( ). The software opens and functions normally. NOTE: The HP Director window and icons might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.

    5-Repeat Steps 1 through 4 every time you use HP Directo

    Thanks,
