Windows 7: Resolution issue

Windows 7
Resolution issue

I have just updated to windows 7 on my hp computer and the resolution was fine then.
However after i updated and restarted, even though my computer is on its max resolution, alot of the individual features have become enlarged, making me feel like my computer has a resolution problem.
I have a picture.
I tried to get a size comparison with the meebo text on the bottom right hand corner. As you can see the date and time text are much larger than the meebo text. My resolution is like 1920x1800, but i feel like im in 1600x1400
If it helps, my graphics card is the Intel G33/31 integrated chip
Oh also, I caught a bug.
The top right hand corner, you can see that the tab is overlapping the three buttons.
If anyone can help me, I would be most grateful.

Issue with resolution...
Where I live our power recently flashed. I had installed a few updates prior to the flash, but due to the fact that some were for Microsoft Office which I had recently uninstalled, some of them failed. When the power flashed, it rebooted like normal, but took me to the screen with the different...

Resolution issue.
Greetings, just wanted to find out, if there is a chance to somehow force an application - a PC game in this example - to adjust itself to a full screen mode. I'm not really sure, how to describe that, since I've never met with a such thing before. I start the game and when it launches, it...

Major resolution issue
Hello all, I have never, ever had this problem before. I have a Sceptre 22 inch monitor which runs at 1680X1050. Whenever I reinstall Vista it always sets it to 1920X1080, but it looks terrible so I set it to 1680X1050 (what it was made for) and its fine. With Windows7 same deal. But when I set it...
