screen resolution messages

albert_135September 21, 2011

The new Yahoo mail and at least one other place,, give me a message that my screen resolution is 981x785 but if I do start>control panel>display>settings it says my display is 1280X1024. (XP, Firefox 3.6x, old Dell)

My Yahoo mail is really out of kilter vertically in some places. The byu site may be just slightly off.

How can I fix it to read my mail?

What gives?

Try setting your resolution at 1280 x 960 which is correct for a 4 x 3 ratio monitor.

Not suggesting you are wrong at all but changing it then testing those 2 sites might answer your problem. You can always revert back if you wish.

Yahoo complains about my resolution when I have the page zoomed and go there.

Laptop is wide screen set at 1280 x 800 normal.
