    Recently turned on the laptop and the icon size,wallpaper size,text
    size/clarity and resolution have all become larger somehow (possibly after a
    windows update). Have tried adjusting the dpi,resolution,appearance,refresh
    rate, intel graphics card options, and the instructions given in the help
    menu but still can't get back to my original settings which is causing a lot
    of eye strain.Am running a Mobile Intel(R) 945GM/GU Express Chipset Family
    and a Intel core2duo T 5200 with Windows Vista home premium.If anyone can
    suggest anything different i'd appreciate it....thanx in advance!

    Only a wild guess: try opening Device Manager and check to see if the
    driver for your graphics card has a 'prior version'. Windows update
    apparently likes to install older/incorrect drivers if given the chance.
