Specs: Windows XP
When viewing, the whole screen cannot be seen without scrolling around even when changing zoom levels. I cannot therefore click certain tick boxes to continue on pages as I can't see them.
Any ideas to fix this????

What is your screen resolution at present? You may need to change this.

Sounds that you're using a high screen resolution with virtual screen. That means, you have to move the mouse to the right, to scroll the screen to the most right position and maybe to the bottom of the screen to get the taskbar.

So simply change the screen resolution to fit you monitors resolution.

Hi Ewan and thanks for your reply. The screen resolution is 640x480 but I can't change this with the slider. The slider turns yellow when I click on it and won't budge.

I screen resolution is 640x 400 and you can't change it by using the slider, I guess you are missing the correct driver for your graphics card. Have you installed all the drivers for your computer correctly?

Drivers were already installed when I bought the p.c. many moons ago.Had no problems with it until a few weeks ago when I first noticed the problem.

Have you checked the device manager for errors on any device?

Here is the answer

Go to System Preferences > Universal Access > Seeing tab > Zoom

Zoom is a radio button with the choices On or Off. Choose the other one. The change will take place before you exit the screen so you will know immediately if this is the change you want.

Take care --
