You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: - http://welcome.hp.com/country/au/en/cs/support.html
You may need to lower the resolution to play those old games.
1.Right-click an empty area of the desktop, and then click Properties. 2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab. 3.Drag the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor 4.Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect. 5.Click OK.
Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.
The cable connecting the motherboard to the screen might have a few open wire. It's why the problem occur when you move the lid. download the service manual to have access to this cable (HERE: : http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/Dell/LATITUDE/C510-610/C510-610.PDF) Unwrap very gently the cable from is sticky tape and you should find a dozen of very small wire, one or two might need to be reconnected together. Or You might also have a problem with the VGA card, in that case your only chance is to find a replacement one on ebay, or if the VGA card is integrated to the motherboard, then....live with it. You should find all the details on the service manual. Good luck tell me if it did solve anything, and please rate.. cheers
its a very simple and easy to solve problem. The display driver is not set to scale the picture to full monitor. instead it shows it on the center you have two options
1. change the resolution in red alert 2 to higher (1024x768) 2. or find from your display properties -> advanced -> scaleing settings. the picture needs to be scaled to full screen instead of shown on the center.
it is somewhere in the settings, I don't know exactly where because it varies from laptop to laptop.
go and try to find it, if you really can't find it we can do a remote support session and I'll fix it for you.
