Please describe "smaller than it was". Does it mean fewer but larger objects
fit on the screen? Does it mean some of your display is displaying only black?

Please upload /var/log/Xorg.0.log to or other web
space and provide a URL so people can evaluate what's happening on your system.

Please share output from terminal: 'lspci | grep VGA'.

I'm guessing you have Intel video, as it's very common. 14.10 if I'm reading
right is using xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.99.914, which could be as broken as
the latest release version, 2.99.916. If this is correct, you may need a
manual X server configuration workaround, via /etc/X11/xorg.conf, that at a
minimum includes as follows:

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Default Device"
    Option        "AccelMethod"    "UXA"
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
