    Lately when i turn on my powerbook g4, the desktop screen seems to be enlarged so that i cannot see some of the icons and the tool bar. the date and time are also pushed out of the picture. can anyone offer me a way to alleviate or diagnose this?? i would be happy to hear any suggestions.
    Thank You!!!

    Check system prefs / universal access and make sure that zoom is turned off....

    Hold CTRL and apply two fingers on your trackpad. Move them towards you as if you wanted to scroll down a page.

    Have you been hooking your PB up to an external monitor or projector? Try heading to System Preferences --> Displays and seeing if you can diagnose things there. Try the "Detect Displays" button or try setting your resolution manually to the highest available resolution.
