    Hi, When I turned on my computer yesterday, everything was bigger (it just
    happened). It seems as if everything is magnified (i.e., the windows
    toolbar, start menu, desktop icons, the internet, and all other images and
    text) and windows that I open do not fit on the screen anymore. We have
    tried to change the font size in the Control panel and the DPI, but that does
    not work. We are using Microsoft XP Media Center Edition 2004. Any help
    anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Ashley,
    Possibly the video driver lost its settings and defaulted to 800x600
    setting.
    Right click on blank area of desktop, select personalize. display settings
    and check resolution

    If you recently opened a pdf. Some settings may have been changed. Locate
    the AcroRd32.exe and right-click on the exe name, then click on the
    Compatibility tab. Uncheck the Display setting that indicates Run in 640 x
    480 screen resolution.

    I am having the same problem. I finally got the Yahoo to display on one
    page by using the suggestions on the display icon. The font is still
    extremely small, I have a vision problem, but I can live with some of it. If
    you can come up with a solution, please let ME know also.
