My laptop screen keeps displaying at a very large proportion. when I go to control pannel then display, I see that the pixels are at lowest of 4 and the dimensions are 640x480. I've looked at the adapter and changed the specification to 1024x798 and the colour to medium 16 bit. there is a multi monitor function ATI Radeon Xpress 200m and the screen seems to set at no 1. Even when change the dimensions to 1024x798 and then press apply, it changes it for that session but when I reopen another time it reverts back to the enlarged display.
I'm sorry that my description may not be very helpful or detailed. the problem is that I don't want to spend all the time I get available on trying to alter the display when I could be doing something much more valuable. Also we can't always gauruntee a steady amount of electricity or of it's current, so there is a bit of pressure to try and get as much done as I can when i can.
I use the Windows XP version and the computer itself is a Toshiba Intel and I've had this one since 2004. I live in Dar Es Salaam where the climate is hot and humid for much of the year, and we are now having power rationing so if you answer this please be patient with my answering you too as it may take a bit longer than usual to get access to the internet.
Is this problem the computers age, or a virus or something else? Would the Home Everest programme be of any use to me too?
Thanks for reading this.
