Hi!
So my mom was correcting a document on word and she ( or so she says) pressed the delete button and suddenly the display screen shrunk into the center of the monitor. I have tried a system restore and played around with the menu buttons on the screen... I have Windows XP and my desktop computer is a compaq presario SR1030NX

Did you check, if in display settings, "stretch" is selected?

Hi,
unfortunately I don't have another desktop. Could there be something else causing this?
Thanks again

Could be a bad cable, video card, etc.
Hard to tell.
Checking monitor on another working computer will be the quickest test.
A neighbour, a friend, family member....?
