What happens from one moment to other is that the settings for the display changed because all the icons are bigger than normal and the mouse does not work at all. I tried to set in control panel for display icon but without any results so when I set I am unable to press apply because I can not go downwards since the mouse is inop. Please if you can help with this problem. The pc is pentium III with win98se.

The TAB key and the arrow keys will let you move the highlight to different areas of a window if your mouse is inoperable. Space-bar if you need to select a "radio button".

Best to get your mouse fixed/replaced. :thumbsup:

Hi there,

It sounds like there could be two possible problems here:

1. You could have faulty display drivers. You should contact your PC or Video card manufacturer about updating your video card. You could also try changing your system settings in the display properties (Control Panel) from 32-Bit color to 16-Bit color to see if you experience the same symptoms.

2. Some video card drivers come with a applet (small application) that automatically loads. It may include hotkeys that allow you to change resolution on the fly. This program may be faulty or you may be hitting the hotkeys unintentionally.

Either way, it seems to be related to you video adapter driver/software.
