Problem with seeing fonts on my desktop

Yesterday, I had reassembled my desktop for some reasons, after i turned ON my desktop I realized that my desktop icons appears very large so I went to Control Panel-> Display and adjust resolution. But after that I had problem with my font appearance in Windows Explorer, Adobe Reader, etc

I did not even see time on my Task bar, Its faded something,

Please provide i relevant solution to my post

Thanks.

This is not the way I would have done that. Suggest you reset the resolution to where it was. Then right click on the desktop and go to 'View". There you can adjust the size of the desktop icons.

You can also hold the CTL button down and roll the wheel on your mouse. That changes the icon size too.

Can you see other graphics and pictures normally, or is it only the desktop - we have to see whether there might be a graphics driver problem.

Hi Gaurav. Welcome aboard.

I hope you have set your resolution to the recommended one. If so, check the VGA or DVI connections are properly connected or not.

BTW, have you reinstalled windows or not ? If so, have you installed the display driver ?
