My screen resolution is set to 1280x1024. Currently it's only a black screen that says "Need to set screen resolution to 1280 x 1024@60Hz@", but I can't do that because I cannot access settings in Windows to change the resolution.

What have you done to try to access display properties? You should be able to right click on an empty area of your desktop and from the context menu, select 'Properties', which would take you to the settings.

How can I change the pixels and resolution on a fairly new computer tower and an older monitor that was given to me? Web pages are way too big and all my pictures are blurry.

When I've had to do this, I:

RIGHT click somewhere on the desktop. A box will open up.

LEFT click on PROPERTIES.

Click on the SETTINGS tab.

And from there the monitor settings can be adjusted. When they are good, click OK.

I hope this helps. Best of luck!

Depending on the monitor type there may have been an accessory program loaded to your PC when you installed the video driver. Activate this program and look around, you may find a place to adjust your resolution and pixel depth. More than likely Mrs.story gave you the best advise.

If you're still having issues with the web pages being too big, do this:

In the bottom right-hand corner of your screen, you should see a number. If it is greater than 100%, click on the adjacent down-arrow and select '100%'. If the text is still too large, go to the top tool-bar and select 'View'.

Then select 'Text' and select which size you want to view your text [from Largest to Smallest]

My screen is going from normal to a bigger size. When this happens an icon appears at the tip of the arrow. Sometimes the screen goes back to normal size automatically while I am still browsing or I have to change it to the 100%.
