Can you tell us a bit more? What distribution are you using? What were you doing when the screen changed? etc.

Did perhaps a cat (or similar) step on the keyboard (well, she'd have to be very agile…) and hit [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[+] (or [-]), thus zooming in/out? Or yourself maybe without knowing?

You cannot spell, you can't punctuate, you cannot even describe your problem clearly, you cannot provide any useful information. You are "strugelin for a weekend with it now", but it's only Thursday.

You can bleat though.

Please help us to help you, first by learning to help yourself.

No, in a word.

Have you searched the net for a solution to your problem ?
What were the results ?
What have you tried to fix the problem ?
What happened ?

Which distro are you using ?

What is your video hardware ?
Which video driver are you using ?
What is your xorg.conf ?

Mad at you

You might get more co-operation from tredegar and others if you read and absorbed the spirit as well as the letter this guide.
