Removal of Windows Service Pack 3 has messed up my Screen DPI?

Asked by StrawBaleTeacher (14points) October 9th, 2008

I removed the service pack 3 from my computer because the installation of the pack made it impossible for me to print architectural drawings from my design program. Having removed the pack, I was able to print, but my screen DPI (dots per inch) is now huge. My screen looks like a bad comic book and I can’t seem to fix it in my control panel. I have reinstalled the service pack 3 and all the other available updates, yet nothing changes. How do I get my screen back?

1. Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings (tab)
2. Move the Screen Resolution slider to the right as desired.
3. Click OK.

Yeah. I tried that but it won’t keep the settings. I have now removed several updates from the computer and things look okay again. Now I just have to reinstall the updates and hope things don’t fall apart on me!

Consider checking if there have been any BIOS or other firmware updates for your PC. I’ve seen those jack with my video settings, too.
