Does it say "safe mode" in the four corners?
If not, then what you mean to say is that "the sceen resolution is no longer the same as usual ... it's now set at "___ X ___" (with the numbers filled in)
You can always right-click anywhere on the desktop, and the context menu
that appears will have an option (usually at the bottom) called Properties
. Click that one, and the Display Properties box should appear.
There are many tabs
to choose from.
The one you want for this is called settings
in win98, I think.
It is there you can see what screen resolution
you are currently set at.
You may also use the slider to change it.
It might take a little practice.
Use apply & OK.
Sometimes it doesn't work, but it should. Try that.
Anyway, tg1911 is right. Always post details
because we see the post one at a time.
If you want to practice copy/paste, you can go to your original post, click at the start of the text
, hold the mouse button down, drag
the mouse with the button held and watch the words turn blue. (highlighting
When you've highlighted the ones you want to copy, like for instance the description of your PC
, release the button.
They'll stay highlighted.
Then right-click again, the context menu will offer you a choice called copy
Now you can come back to this thread, click reply, and with the message box openned up, get the context menu again and you'll see the option to paste
When you click it, anything you had "stored on your OS clipboard" meaning anything you chose to copy
will be pasted. Then, you can click past that, hit enter a couple times and type more details about your present problem.
That way you can give more details without re-typing them.
Also good for posting stuff that might be important.
Things you want to include that come from somewhere else, either online
like here or from your own PC, like things you type or are part of other documents.
Using that same technique you can copy things from:
Websites like this
anywhere words appear, with some exceptions.
Error messages might need to be placed on a notepad by typing them in.
Logs and things can often be "sent to" a notepad as a .txt file.
can be copy/pasted, too.
Let us know more, using this practice routine if you like.
I've been very busy Ashton. The lawn is growing.
