Question can't see whole screen

I am using Ubuntu on an old Dell P3 and some of the screens are off the page at the bottom and I cannot press the "continue" button at the bottom of the page. Sometimes "enter" works, but not always. I've tried messing with the resolution, but the screen gets messed up. Any hints on how to fix this?

Obviously you have got the display settings wrong... that is what you need to fix.
You can also play with your monitor settings (possibly)
