are there any scratches on the disk? do you know for a fact that this disk has worked in the past?

You could see if creating a copy of it makes any difference as I'd expect many copying programs to complain if there is a problem with the CD.

Right click anywhere on the desktop, click properties, then you want the settings tab. Increase the resolution to one that suits the size of the monitor.

gooner, you took the words right out of my mouth - thankfully it wasn't while you were kissing me

That's Meatloaf, not an offer.

eieman, I'm glad you had a friend with the same model, having an exact machine next door can really help with finding where a problem is and I'm sure a backup is already done or on it's way.
