    If it is windows, right click on your anywhere on your desktop, click properties, click appearance, then there should be a "Font size" option. If it ways large, or very large, then that is your problem.

    Sounds like your resolution has been set too low.

    XP: Right Click and empty space on the Desktop select Properties.
    In the new menu Click the Settings Tab.
    On the left you will see a Slider labeled Screen Resolution.
    Initially move this to the Right for 1024 X 768.
    You will have to set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) before it will allow you to do so.
    After you have adjusted the slider click the Apply Button, this should restore everything to a bearable size, just keep move the slider left and right until it is comfortable.

    If the slider only has 2 settings, then you are missing the Display Driver, post back for help with that as well.

    Vista: Right Click and empty space on the Desktop select Personalize.
    In this new menu click Display Settings at the bottom.
    On the left you will see a Slider labeled Resolution.
    Initially move this to the Right for 1024 X 768.
    You will have to set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) before it will allow you to do so.
    After you have adjusted the slider click the Apply Button, this should restore everything to a bearable size, just keep move the slider left and right until it is comfortable.

    Windows 7: Right Click and empty space on the Desktop select Screen Resolution.
    On the left you will see a Slider labeled Resolution.
    Initially move this to the Right for 1024 X 768.
    You will have to set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) before it will allow you to do so.
    After you have adjusted the slider click the Apply Button, this should restore everything to a bearable size, just keep move the slider left and right until it is comfortable.

    Let us know how you do.
