I turned on my mac this morning, and the lights and everything started normal, just no picture on the screen. I turned it off and back on and it started right up, but EVERYTHING on my screen is Huge. I tried restarting, shutting down, lowering the resolution. Any ideas? The only thing I can think of that effected it was I downloaded an update of safari before my shutdown. Im on OSX 10.4.11

ANY IDEAS? Thanks

I doubt the Safari update caused that problem.

Are you saying that adjusting the screen resolutions didn't change anything?

What model of Mac do you have?

By the way, you could do a better job on the title of your thread. Describe the problem!

Do you by chance have your ZOOM control on? Open System Preferences, go to Universal Access, and check to see if the ZOOM control is off or on.

Regards.

You might also want to look at your Display controls in System Preferences. You might have the resolution set to oversized dimensions. Or try holding down the Control key while scrolling in and out to see if you might have accidentally zoomed in.
