i gave my aunt a used dell inspiron 8100. p3 1.13ghz, 512mb ram, 20gb hdd, blah blah blah.
the screen is amazing! with xp, it defaulted to 1600x1200. its so beutiful i was tempted to keep it myself, but i really dont need another computer. but heres the problem. shes my aunt, and she has trouble seeing the things on the screen cuz the resolution is so very high, making everything so small. so its difficl;t for her to see and when i set it down, it maintains the small size, and only uses up the middle part of the screen, not full screen anymore. how do i make it so at lower resolutions it fills the screen and makes everything bigger? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!
i dont think this is an xp setting. could it be hardware design limitation? for example, on my ibm r50 laptop, it did the same thing, until i enabled H/V EXPANSION in the bios. but i cant find the setting on the dell laptop...
