I have a Fujitsu Lifebook 535TX  Pentium 133MHZ.  I have had it since 1995.  It originally came with Windows-95.

I reformated the Hard Drive and installed Windows 98 and eversince, I can not adjust the desktop above 800x600.  If I adjust to 1024x768, it does not change the size of the Icons but it does cause the desktop to increase in size and the menu bar to go off the display.

The Display is "default monitor on chips and tech. 65550 PCI and the colors adjust to High Color (16 bit).  If you look at Tech Info it indicates that the display is SVGA.

The Device manager says everything is working properly and that there are no conflicts.

The Video Driver is the one obtained from the Reinstall disket and also from the Fujitsu Website.

If I went back to Windows 95, could that solve my problem?

I believe the monitor does not support that resolution and/or frequency.

Try lowering the refresh rate but be aware that you can severely damage ths monitor.

I don't Know, maybe I am spoiled these days with the sharper screens,

but I don't remember the icons being as large as they are?

You are more than likely correct.

I will hang on a little longer to see if there is a solution.

Thanks John

See Display Properties > Effects.

Maybe you selected/ticked "Use large icons"?

Worth checking.
