    Default small picture

    My Dell Inspiron 8000 fell to the floor and now the picture is 4" high X 5" wide. What should I be checking to find problem? I am running Windows 2000 Pro.

    The fact that you can start up and actually get an image, albeit small, indicates your system is working and that the problem lies solely with the video card. Have you tried resetting the screen resolution? Alternatively, try reinstalling the video card driver.

    If that doesn't work, you may have dislodged something internally. You can check that the RAM is properly seated, but the problem may be more serious than that.
