Default Windows too small

I have a Dell 4600 with 17" LCD monitor. Some of the windows that are displayed on my screen are too small. The text is cut off, and I cannot place my cursor over the prompt buttons. The windows are not resizeable. I've changed the DPI & Font settings, and nothing works. Any suggestions on how I can get this resolved? Thanks.

It could also be that the resolution is to big. Even 800x600 will make your text huge so that it dont fit on the screen. I would recommend at least 1024x768 for a resolution. To check your resolution right click on your desktop. Go tot properties. From there click on the settings tab. That shows your resolution. Move the slider over till you find a resolution that you like.

Could be your driver as well. Try updating it for your video card. It's a long shot I know, but its at least something.
