I need to re-install Windows XP on my Compaq nx9005 laptop, however when I kick off the installation the screen shrinks and remains throughout the installation.

On completion the screen is still shrunk. Can anyone please advise how I can maximise the screen and continue in that mode?

Thanks, Singing Boy:help:

Install the chipset and videocard drivers. Then the rest of the drivers (LAN/sound etc)

As easy as that eh? I thought it might be a couple of key´s I need to press??

Anyway thanks for that Speedy.

Dont know IF that'll fix it, it may let you change the resolution (once the video drivers are installed). So, you can see something

Thanks Speedy. Once I installed the ATI Radeon driver previously installed following the WinXP install and rebooted then full screen mode kicked in.

Much happier now and my network adaptor works again (just reloading the driver did not do the trick).

Thanks again and keep up the good work.:thanks
