Computer Woes

Tuesday my computer would not boot up. Instead of getting the desktop with icons, etc., on it, all I got was a black screen with a blinking cursor. I tried several things and ended up doing a Systems Restore which effectively re-installed all the programs. I lost all my Favorites. When I was finally able to log in, the computer said it couldn’t find the modem. So that night I took the computer to Best Buy where I purchased a modem and they installed it for me.

Once back home, I tried to fire up the computer so I could read email and blogs. To my dismay, all the icons are tiny and the print is very small. I know there’s a way to change this so both the type and the icons are larger. But I can’t find the spot where I do that. Does anyone know? Can you help me?

    It sounds like your monitor settings were changed (likely to the monitor best buy uses).

    Right click on your desktop (anywhere that is not a window) and choose properties. click on settings and slide the ‘screen resolution” bar to 1024 by 768. click apply. This should restore the picture. If not, hit cancel and choose a different setting. If nothing works, then try rebooting. if that still doesn’t work, you’ll need to call someone cause it’s not something simple.

    lemme know if this helps.
