View Full Version : [SOLVED] Fedora16 display problem

14th October 2012, 10:01 AM
I was using Fedora13 and upgraded it to Fedora14 using preupgrade. But while installing Fedora14, it threw unexpected error and machine did not boot. So I decided to install fresh Fedora16. Installation of Fedora16 was successful. But when I logged in, the screen size was unusually large. I tried display options. But I could not fix the issue. My PC is Dell Optiplex 780. I did 'yum update'. It too didn't help. Installing KDE will help? Or is there any way of using gnome-tweak-tool to fix my issue?

Please check System Settings and then select Displays. Here you can select a lower resolution for your monitor.

Thanks george_toolan. I found out the reason. BY default or accidentaly the zoom option on the right top corner was 'ON' and so the display was too large. I turned it OFF and now everything is ok. :dance:
