text is too small after installing new windows


i'm new here,

i have just registered asking for a help

i have changed my windows some hours ago, but everything appears small

i did changed size from "appearance, color, advanced settings .... "

but the content text size is still the same

i mean this :

i have tried to change the display resolution, but still the same:

i'm sure that all drivers are up to date :

i have tried the DPi, it makes all my screen bigger, which i don't want

i just need the text to be bigger in this pic:

the problem was just after installing new windows 7 x64 ultimate sp1

my cards are: ATI 7670 HD , Intel HD 4000 R
screen size is 15.6 in

note that, i have opened my remote desktop connection and found the same issue :

although on old windows, everything was fine !
