I ended up rolling back the driver update to a previous one through the control panelp>device manager, and then it reboot the computer and it was all back to normal.
I just wanted to post this so it could help others. But thank you for the suggestion, Bob
Hey all --
New to CNET forums. I have a question regarding my HP Windows 7 G-series notebook malfunctioning. I'm afraid it might be a problem with the hardware breaking down, or it could just be a problem thats well-known and easily fixable.
Recently when I booted up my computer like normal, everything on the desktop was big, even though i didnt change the resolution at all. I tried making a bigger and then back to normal resolution and it did not fix the problem.
Then, i tried running Ccleaner like i normally do, as well as the registry cleaner (which came up as empty), shutting down and rebooting the computer. Everything was still big. By that time i was using the battery, and put it on powersaver.
I shut it down when i was done, and then booted it back up later, and when i went to put it back on normal power after plugging my charger back in, it wouldnt go back to the normal interface. it just stayed stuck on powersaver appearance.
I made sure i didnt have any updates to do, which i didnt, and i made sure to do a full virus scan with avast, which came up as clean.
im now doing a boottime scan. is that the right thing to do? is there something im missing? is this stuff indicative of something specific that is breaking down?
thanks for your time.
