  Solution to Laptop problem, (of shrunken screen) - - - -

  Per advice of several kind people, I went to the Dell site and tried to find 
a video driver for my son's laptop, (a Latitude H-500).  I had some difficulty 
finding a driver on the Dell site, so I went to "Drivers.com" and downloaded a 
large file (20MB) that purportedly would control the laptop screen. That was a 
mistake since it really screwed up the screen.  Going into Safe mode to try and 
delete the troublesome driver via Control Panel.Display did not work. I 
actually had to go into DOS to delete that driver.

  I went back to the Dell site and after prolonged search, I FINALLY found a 
driver that would work with the laptop.  Again, I tried to download it and 
after a 95% transfer, Compuserve shut me down. ( It was well over an hour 
wasted!!!)  I downloaded a program that promised to "save" my downloads and 
after activating it, I was able to download a 17MB Zip file. I unzippd it and 
after it installed, the laptop screen worked correctly.

  Thanks to all those who took the time to offer suggestions.  My son I 
appreciate your help.

  Jupiter Matt
