    Ever since i got my computer back, the monitor has been screwed. On TB, the writing has shrunk, to the point where i can barley read it. Ive attached a pic so you know whati mean.

    Anyway iyts only the actual forums themselves, not the frames on the top and left.

    Can anyone tell me how to get it back to normal?! :confused:
     
  2. What's the resolution? And text size on your internet browser is set at what?

    The screen resolution is set to 800x600, and i have no idea how to tell you what the text size is.

    if you have a wheel mouse, you can hold control on your keyboard and spin the scroll mouse to change text size.

    the guy that my old man knows (who saved all the data) has all the data on another hard drive, but dad still doesnt want to take the computer over there. after i get my new bass, a 4x10 cab and my car, im saving for my own computer.

    That's extremely sucky.<BR><BR>Make sure you get a CD burner in your next machine :p In fact, by the time you've got all the other stuff on your list, DVD burners will probably be realistically priced :D
