Cindy, Did You Try This ?

Open the Control Panel, then double click on the "Display" icon. When that loads, click on the "Settings' icon. When that loads, move the screen resolution slider to something like 800 X 600 or higher. If you can't see the "Apply" button, simply press the "Enter" key. It should cause the changes to take place.

Hope this helps.

What is your display set at and what do you want it to be? What video card do you have? Based on the little information given, I'd say you don't have the video drivers loaded for the resolution you are trying to set. chuck

The diplay settings are set at 640x480, the problem didn't occur until we did IE updates, had to reboot system 5 times, an then nothing worked. Not IE nor programs, Today IE is working an programs but they are to large to operate correctly. I tried doing the custom settings they won't apply nothing happens. This is on a IBM.
