    laptop problem please help.

    hi all right i have had my lappy since last xmas and have had nothing but problems with it the latest being the writing on the screen is massive now its not on the internet explorer where i can change my view from 100% upwards if you know what i mean (sorry i am completely useless as far as computers go lol.)it must be some sort of setting, i am currently on my partners laptop as i cant even sign in to this site as the writing is so big i cant even sign in i have had loads of probs with this laptop and my partner has just put it back to factory settings for me to sort its problems out but now i am stuck with the huge writing like sitting with your eyeballs on the screen. please help me so i can finally use it again.

    What is the laptop model and what operating system are you using?

    is the writing just large on websites , of so if you hold down ctrl then press minus it should decrease the size

    if u got a wheeled mouse try holding down CRTL and moving mouse wheel or + or -

    Set the screen resolution to something sensible. Sounds like it's defaulted to a low res VGA.

    Hope you get it sorted. I can also see some new drivers being released for VGA graphics for your model (23-12-2009). It is worth updating the display drivers but make sure you get the right drivers. If you are not comfortable doing it, get someone else to do it who knows about it.

    Turn the laptop off , take the battery out for 5 minutes and then restart. Might get rid off any lockups.
