Big Screen, Little Screen. What is up?

  1. I just got a used laptop. It was beautiful. It only has windows 2000 in it but I will upgrade that next week. I did want to know why my screen went from full size to half sized in one day.

    I am at a loss. It even looks fuzzy now. It was clean looking. I have not added this computer to my profile yet. I will get the stats in soon. Maybe today if I can get this thing hooked up to my printer today.

    When I looked in hardware it looks like its missing a driver now and I do not own a windows 2000 prof. CD.

    You guys have always hooked me up.
    Help a fellow nerd want to be out.

    Thanks, Always

    Not exactly sure what you mean

    But I believe one of the function buttons can shrink (or expand) the size of the screen

    My window is shrinking

    Big screen, my window was full size. Took up the whole 14" screen.
    Little screen, my window got like 2.5 inches smaller.

    I guess it could be that the graphics card died. It does not show any drivers now.
    It wants ati2mtai.sys. I dont have the 2000 disk for it so when I upgrade to a newer windows I will have to get a new video card.

    Or does someone know where I can get some archive drivers????

    Peace, Always
