Windows 7: Desktop too big for screen on Netbook

Desktop too big for screen on Netbook

I don't know why, but my desktop is now far too big for my screen on my HP Mini. I can't see the bottom, right or left hand side of the desktop. I've tried looking at the screen resolution, but nothing that I do there seems to have any effect. Can someone help please as I can't even access the switch off button!

Hi Fijay10,

Try this: Go to control panel, and go to Appearance & Personalization. Look for Display and click Make text or other items bigger or smaller is underscored. Select it and click the appropiate size 100% and apply. Restart the computer and it should be fixed.
Oh and return it to Native resolution after that.

Failing that you may need a Graphics Driver update or you may not have one intalled, if this is the case then some modes will not be listed.

Please post Model number HP Mini .....

cheers
