I'm using Windows XP. I have software called
Device Doctor.

It scans for out-dated drivers.

My problem is the "maaximize" button doesn't work, and
I can't pull the sides of any window so I can see
bottom of window.

I know there's a software somewhere that fixed this but
forgot the name of it.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you, Mary

Hello M Rushing,

What screen resolution are you using?
  • Right mouse click on an empty portion of your desktop and click "Properties."
  • Click the "Settings" tab. Under "screen resolution" remember this original setting. Now move the slider toward "more."
  • Click "Apply" and "OK." Windows will change the resolution and ask if you wish to keep the new setting. Say "yes" and try your Driver Program again.
  • If you don't like the new setting, repeat above steps and return the settings to where they were originally.

FWIW: Downloading drivers using this kind of driver program (and there are many like this one) can result in unwanted consequences such as devices not working properly, even BSODs. Many feel that the best place to obtain stable drivers is from the computer manufacturer's website if it's an OEM computer or the device manufacturer's site if it's a stand along card.

Thank you, and I will go to the manufacturer's website.

I know there's a software that will help me re-size the window.
Take care, Mary
