What Windows build are you using and what sort of connection do you use to connect to your monitor, DVI or VGA.

It can be allot more helpful if you fill in your system specs, you can see the link on the bottom left side of the post.

What video card are you using and have you looked for updated drivers for it, what sort of monitor is it, LCD or CRT and is it the older style connection (VGA) or a Digital Connection (DVI) which is larger then a VGA connection and has more pins.

Hi Jordan,

You might also check to see if may be your DPI settings that are not set to the default 96 DPI.

Hope this helps,
