Have an enlarged or strange icons and an enlarged image on a Desktop Dell Dimension 2400

This question is not answered

I Install a fresh XP copy in a Desktop Dell Dimension 2400,but I forgot to save the drivers first,so when I finish,in the Display settings said 16 bit color,so I download the drivers for LAN,AUDIO,etc and when I download an install the video driver,the icons looks like some kind of enlargedI change the resolution but still look some kind of strange an not a standard picture,do I have to make any other download like an update oradjust anything in the the Intel integraded video card?

Thanks for any hint you may give me.

  • The icon size should change accordingly when you change the screen resolution?

    Are you sure you downloaded the correct drivers?




    BTW:  You really ought to consider upgrading to a dedicated graphics card?

    Even a cheap one will be better than the on-board graphics solution you're using just now Idea
