I am sure it is a resolution thing too, but I the settings have always been as high as they will go. I mailed AOL and they said the same as you, so I don't know how I can fix this

This may be one of my dumber questions so apologies in advance.
You have a couple of snips in posts 29 and 30. In 29, did you try changing the DPI (dots per inch) to see if that has any effect? Post 30 indicates you're using the Intel dashboard to make your adjustments. Have you checked via your desktop to make sure screen resolution is set the same and not conflicting in some way? Right click empty part of desktop > screen resolution. Again, apologies if this has been asked and answered previously.

Hello Marsmimer

Thanks for the reply.
I have previously done as you suggested, and things stay the same. I only had a glimmer of hope when I saw there was a driver update, but even after the install everything was exactly the same.

I'm losing hope of fixing this now; there's nothing left to try.
