OFL created the topic: Problems with screen and Windows 8 laptop

We bought my sister a laptop back Christmas that has Windows 8 installed. Today she phoned up complaining that everything has gone really small on the screen and you can hardly read anything. Also, she seems to have turned everything upside down. I can't really think of what could be wrong because I don't have Windows 8, but I imagine someone out there may know what's wrong and can give some advice please?

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

everything gone really small = resolution, this can be changed from the control panel. the screen direction can be reset with control alt "up arrow"

I did get her to check the resolution and it was on the one that said "recommended". What about everything turning upside down?

In the screen settings menu, you can select an option to make text and items smaller or larger. Its called easy read or something like that. Set it back at 100%, it's prob set aloy lower like 50%. You can access the menu by right clicking on the desktop and selecting screen properties or settings. I can further instruct you later when I'm home if needed
