Thread: Font changes size on desktop and internet pages.




  1. #1

    Default Font changes size on desktop and internet pages.

    Answer this if you can. I got a call from a lady that I built this computer for. I has vista premium. The first time I went over, her screen font was huge. The internet could not be displayed properly. Also any icons on the screen were massive too. The side bar was fine. The icons in the tray were also ok. If I would open a page in the control panel or whatever it was also ok. I checked resolution settings and they were set right. I did a system restore and looked only to find an update that had been installed. I did the system restore and it now worked.

    I got another call tonight and the same thing happened only this time the font on the internet pages was minute and too small to see. The icons were also that way. As before the sidebar was fine and so was the tray icons. I looked and there had been another update. I did another system restore and it fixed the problem. Has anyone seen anything like this before????

    I haven't been playing with Vista much, but if an update is causing the issue, you should be able to disable that update from ever initiating again.

    ok what vista is doing is installing updated video drivers - it does this and its probably a good idea but not well implemented

    when the drivers are installed it resets the desktop

    the system restore won't help since it'll just reinstall the update again and you'll get another phone call.

    let it install the update, then install the latest video card driver
