By system I assume you mean printer and not display.  Is this for a web page or what will run the C# code and where will it run?  Is this for a specific type of printer (i.e. laser printers) or just for all?

I am not sure I can help but there are parts of the question and what you are doing that aren't clear.  The answers will help.

Let me clarify:
I am looking to change the display DPI and font size. The C# code will be an application running on windows. Sorry for the ambiguity!

Did that comment really answer this?  I am a little surprised since it seemed to just ask questions.  If I was helpful then great but if there was no answer and you just wanted to close this then it should be deleted.  If that is the case then I can help you do that.  Let me know if you have a question.
