    I've been using an external monitor (acer) with my iMac 24" 2.16 ghz core 2 duo, mostly with Logic and various instrument plugins. It's been working great for a few months. Then today all of a sudden the display changed resolution (I think in response to some Logic zoom commands that I think are similar to some finder commands? not sure) Anyway, when I reset the system preferences back to what I think it's usually set at, the largest, which is 1920x1200, it looks a little fuzzy, and the full desktop is not shown on the monitor, I have t scroll to get to the edges. I disconnected the acer external, but it didn't change anything.

    Anyone know what could have gone wrong and how to fix? Thanks!

    Check System Preferences, Universal Access, Seeing if Zoom is turned on.
