Depending on what operating system you are using (you didn't say) you should access wherever your screen resolution is controlled from ~ either 'Display' within Control Panel or right click on an empty area of your Desktop and then increase your screen resolution.

Your screen resolution is set to high. How many inches is your monitor and what is your current resolution?

If the screen resolution was set higher than the capability of the monitor, there would be no image at all.

the Internet? Or is this happening on your desktop? If it's happening while using Internet Explorer, hold down the Ctrl key and then use the scroll gauge on your mouse, scroll up or down to see if the screen changes. If the problem is with your desktop go with OlderMycroft.

Hello madlizzy..

The first thing that you will need to do is decide on the best display resolution for your monitor. All you need to do to find this is look at the documentation that came with your monitor. It will tell you exactly what you need to set your screen resolution at.

Once you have determined the correct settings, right-click anywhere on your desktop, and select "Properties". From here, access "Display Properties", Settings. In the "Screen Resolution" area, adjust the slider to the specifications you found in your monitor's documentation. Click the "Apply" button. This should resize your screen image to the correct size for your new monitor. Once you are satisfied with the way your screen looks, click the "OK" button.

If you find this helpful to you, please mark it as helpful, thanks.
