How do I cure this please.

Hold the Ctrl key down (bottom left) and pres the Esc key (top left) once.

This should bring up the Start menu. Open Control Panel > Display. Click on the Settings tab, set the screen resolution to 800 x 600 (drag the slider to the right). Click Apply and OK.

If, once you have the Display window open, you cannot see the tabs at the top to click on them, hold the Ctrl key down again, and while holding it down, press the Tab key 5 times (with a pause between each press) - this will allow you to see the page with the screen resolution on it.
