Default Help! Can't fix resolution! - 02-23-2010, 04:15 AM

Alright guys, I'm in a bit of a panic. I tried several of the methods as suggested by forum members on how to adjust resolution to show certain windows properly and in the process somehow really messed up my resolution. I have deleted all of the programs and scripts that I downloaded and just want it back to the way it was. Please help!!

Here's a screenshot of what my resolution looks like:

Looks like you changed the ScaleFactor using a script or program. Just reboot, and it will probably reset to 100%.
