How can I fix my messed up screen resolution.

Today I installed some updates and right before they were over the screen got all big. I restarted now its like this always.. I have gone and tried changing the screen solution (right click desktop and doing it that way) but it just makes everything look small and nothing like what it was originally.

Try rolling back the graphic drivers to the previous version.

Go to device manager in control panel and find it on the list. Then click on the driver tab.

Glad I could help you. Thanks for the Rep.

I need some help

i have the same problem with my windows 7 OS. i can't find any program to fix it, and can't change the resolution manually. The color bit is only 16 bit and resolution is 640 x 480, but the OS runs fine, just annoying that i cant fix this problem.i cant do anything in such a small screen.
Is there anything i can do to fix this?
