WIndows Sceen resolution become really big after installing a fresh windows xp os RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had to reformat hardrive yesterday and reinstall Windows XP with original manufacturers CD that came with computer. Once done, I opened browser (IE6) and noticed that pages were not in proportion to my screen size settings and there was no background color and some missing graphics. I then updated to IE7 and the sizing issue was rectified, but still no background color and missing graphics. I then downloaded Mozilla Firefox to try a different browser, problem still persists. I,ve also noticed missing colors & graphics in my Windows Live products and Media Player too. I,ve run several maintenance utilities including registry scan and everything comes out clean.

  • Are you sure that the video card drivers were properly installed?
