Move your cursor over the desktop of your computer (minimize or close all windows and/or go to a part of your screen with no icons or windows on it)
and press the right mouse button. Left-handed users with their mouse setup for the left hand should use the left mouse button.
Select Properties from
the pop-up menu.
Click on the Settings
On the bottom left is the Screen Resolution bar.
Move the slider until the resolution shows 1024 x 768 (or any higher resolution
your monitor supports).
Click the OK button.
The screen will turn temporarily black. Some
systems may go into a 15-second 'test' mode to check for compatibility with
the new settings (you will be prompted if this occurs). When the screen comes
back, if all looks OK, the computer may ask if you want to keep these settings.
Click Yes. If your PC goes into a 15-second test mode and you
get no picture or 'jumbled' output for 15 seconds, do NOT accept the new settings.
