regardless of that right click on your desktop and select properties.
Now select the Settings tab and tell us what it shows there for screen resolution (something like 640 by 480 pixels or 800 by 600 pixels) and also tell us your monitor screen size and the resolutions it supports (if you don't know tell us the monitor make and model). It is most likely a simple screen resolution change.
Help! I have something wrong that causes some components to be oversized and do not then fit in their allotted space causing them to be truncated -- clipped. For example: on msnbc web site when playing their videos, the adds on the left side will be too wide thus shoving the video portion too wide therefore cutting off the right side of the picture. That becomes very important when a functioning software is missing controls because they ran out of space.
I have xp sp2 and have checked resolution. dpi is 96. Font size is normal. I am lost to know what to do. This problem started a few weeks ago.
Thanks for any help you can offer
