    Your pixel settings maybe off.Go to start,click once,go to settings,from there go to active desktop,from there go to customize desktop,click on it once ,on the top bar you will see a tab for settings,click on that,at the bottom right you will see a box that says screen size it will have a slider from left to right saying less on one side more on the other side. I have mine set on 800 by 600.You slide this back or forth to change the size of things on you screen.If this does not work you video card is probably going out..or is this what you have already done in settings?I missed that part in your post(sorry)

    Could be what Donny said.
    If that doesn't work, open your browser, click on "view" in your toolbar and check "text" and see if you can change the size there. Mine resets itself on occasion
    (or when one of the kids decides to use my puter)

    Thanks for all the replies. It seems to have recuped again overnight. (Haunted, maybe? Gremlins in the system?) I had already done what you had suggested, Donny, and it had no effect on the problem. And I hadn't done anything with the mouse that would cause it. (What is that roller thing called, anyway -- scroll key or something?)

    It's just one of those stupid thngs, I guess. Hope it doesn't happen again. It was really unpleasant only getting part of the page on the screen.

    It is either the pixel settings in your control panel are off or the text/font size in your browers is off......however, I have had haunted acts of sabotageee (as bugs would say...:chuckle) on my puter that have righted themselves over night. Good luck.
