Did you by any chance change the system font size?
Some windowing tools are totally dependent on the size of the font being standard(like 8.5 or 9)

Don't know. Part of the problem is that forums for installshield are aimed at programmers rather then end users. I searched and didn't see anything remotely related to over-sized dialogs. If you know a few other people with different type of PC get them to start the install until you get to the key entry dialog. The results may give a clue if it's a hardware specific thing.
