I am using an Acer Apire 5000.  I made a change earlier today that made this happen and now I cannot get it back.  I cannot remember what I did to make it this way.

May be easiest to simply run a system restore to day before?

1) Make sure the laptops external CRT setting is shut off.
2) Check refresh rate in the Advanced tab of Display Properties Settings.
3) Also check font sizes in Display Properties > Appearance > Font size. It shouldn't mess up the resolution, but who says computers do what they are supposed to do?

Seriousnick;  That may be the best bet.  I will try that if the suggestions from nelsoncomputer don't work.

Thanks for all your help.
