When I turned on my computer (Dell 5150 Laptop running Windows XP Home) this morning, the resolution was different. Different how? Well, the startmenu bar was smaller, the text on the icons was smaller(the icons may be slightly smaller, but its hard to tell, because everything isnt to scale like it usually is), when I right-clicked, the text was smaller on the labels, etc. When I opened Internet Explorer, everything was smaller also, however my text-size setting had not changed. Also, when I opened a folder, everything was smaller as well. I tried changing resolutions and changing font size settings without much luck. Any help would be great, thanks.

That's strange. Have you tried right-clicking on the desktop, then clicking Properties, then the Settings tab and resetting your resolution? Most LCD screens have a "native" resolution and look better when they're set to it. Do you know what your normal resolution should be?
