    For the big text have you tried this.

    Go to :-

    1.Control Panel

    Then Appearance and Personalization, then fiddle around with adjust screen resolution.

    Thanks,that seems to have worked. Though I now have blank/black borders at the sides of my screen meaning what I see is square and not rectangular and the black square is still here.

    Sounds like a graphics card drivers either failed to update correctly or reverted to a 'safe mode style' output. But without knowing the laptop make model/os its difficult to diagnose for sure.

    Even funnier if you swap the mouse connection between two work PCs next to each other.

    You've not set the screen resolution properly Accy. It's probably 4:3 rather than 16:9 - back into screen settings.

    Has anyone mentioned pressing the Any key yet? :whistle:

    Seriously, though: good luck with the PC, @Accy cyclist , I know they're a nuisance when they don't work as expected.
