Default some windows just don't fit! - 03-12-2011, 11:20 PM

hi everyone. i have a dell inspiron mini 1012 with windows 7 ultimate. my problem with it right now is that certain windows just don't fit on the screen. even if i hide the taskbar, i can't see the bottom of the window. i can't even scroll down or re-size the window. i wanted to try changing the DPI to 96, but it won't go below 100
anyone have an idea about how i can fix this?
i'd really appreciate it.

Someone else had a similar issue - the screen resolution was set incorrectly and they were using the wrong drivers to get the proper resolution. I suggest downloading the appropriate driver from the Dell support site.

my screen resolution is 1024x600. and i only have two options for screen resolution, either 1024x600, or 800x600. there are no options inbetween.
about having the wrong drivers, which ones should i look for? Graphics drivers?
