Please try changing the resolution. Maybe it reverted to a lower one.

 

On Desktop, Right Click, go to Screen resolution, and select the on which you need.
Assuming a normal notebook, the recommended resolution would be 1366x768.

Well, I had the same problem.Nothing helped. In anger I shook my computer. Lo & behold my screen became normal.After ten minutes it became small again. I shook the Pc again & after the screen enlarged I kept an half inch book below the Pc 7 the problem never repeated again.
