My three year old got to my keyboard and just went to town on it...now the size of everything is so big that I cannot even see my task bars...

I have tried changing the resolution, the fonts....no good..

Can you go up to the icon in the very top left of the screen,click on it, then click restore to bring it back to normal?

Boot the PC, keep tapping F8 until you get options, choose safe mode, select the administrator account, check the font size on appearance, check if you can reset the resolution, if you can, re-install the video adapter drivers

Did you keep tapping F8 or just press it

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything
