I've got a PowerBook G4 12". Left it on the coffee table and my 1 year old son got to it. now the screen is super sized, the cursor/mouse arrow takes up the entire screen. I tried going into system preferences/displays, but can't get it to zoom out w/ changing the resolution. is there some sort of zoom short cut that will fix this? it's next to impossible to get around the screen to see anything. help!

More likely the little and accidentally activated zooming

Go to system preferences > Universal Access and turn off zooming, if you cannot see it try command alt - (minus) to zoom out
