Hello,
Try changing your screen resolution to a higher one.

If doesn't work, try reinstalling the video drivers.

Thanks,

The issue you are experiencing may happen if the Display Drivers of the Notebook are corrupted.
I recommend you to try downloading the latest Display Drivers for your Notebook installed with AMD Processor which are available through the link bbelow :
NVidia VGA Drivers for Windows Vista :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35686.exe


NVidia VGA Drivers for Windows XP :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33537.exe


Best way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Internet Explorer window and press Enter to start download.
A window will appear with options like Save, Run and Cancel.
Click on Save and select a common location like the Desktop or My Documents.
Now, once the file is saved, double click on the file to start the installation of the drivers.
This should solve the issue.

How to reduce ddessktop icon size?


hey wassup

theres two ways you can go at this.

1. right click on an open area on ur desktop and just adjust the icons when u hover over the [view] option

2.make sure ur desktop is the only thing visible and give it one click on an open space just to make sure nothing is selected. then hit ctrl+&
at this point to test if it's working. hold ctrl then start to move your mousewheel on your mouse and the icons will start to all magically increase and decrease in size

now option #1 is a bit more easy and its static
while option#2 is a bit more dynamic and you can really make your icons really big or really small. it's up to you.

All my font sizes have increased in size


When you right-click in an empty place within your desktop, there should be an option for decreasing the size of objects on the screen. If this has something to do with what you're seeing on a webpage, then look at the top of the screen under "view" to decrease the size of what you're looking at.

Hope this helps. :)
