Reset video settings intel macbook?

Hi,

last night, I was playing WoW, and after making a switch from fullscreen to windowed mode and back, it turned out that my display settings were messed up.

My desktop is larger then the actual physical display, and when I move the mouse, the whole desktop moves around.

I tried changing the monitor resolutions, restarts, and I reset the PRAM, all with no result.

Is there a way to reset the video card settings completely? Or do I need a reinstall? Or is there any other way I can fix this?

Thanks,
Job

first see if you accidently just zoomed in, which is ctrl+ scoll up/down (so 2 finger scrolling)

the other thing would be to take a look at your screens resolution... but that first one should solve it
