The issue you are experiencing may happen if the Display Drivers of the Notebook are corrupted.
I recommend you to try downloading the latest Display Drivers for your Notebook installed with AMD Processor which are available through the link bbelow :
NVidia VGA Drivers for Windows Vista :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35686.exe


NVidia VGA Drivers for Windows XP :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33537.exe


Best way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Internet Explorer window and press Enter to start download.
A window will appear with options like Save, Run and Cancel.
Click on Save and select a common location like the Desktop or My Documents.
Now, once the file is saved, double click on the file to start the installation of the drivers.
This should solve the issue.

I recently had to format my samsung nc10, everything is as it should be apart from my screen, when ever i go on line i have to scoll right to see right side of screen where as before the whole screen was...


Two things - Does the normal screen look O.K. ? is your screen set for 1024 x 600 (right click desktop, Properties - Settings, (normally this sets itself correctly) drag the slider till it is 1024 x 600)
If the above is set correctly - when on the internet Press Ctrl AND - (minus) to shrink the screen if still too big, repeat. Note the text also gets smaller!

Choose Screen Resolution For higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments. This procedure tells you how to adjust screen resolution through Display Properties in Control Panel.

It could be that the screen is at the correct resolution, but the icons are just set to display larger (Vista allows this). Right-click on the desktop (NOT over any icons), and select "View". there you can select the size of the desktop icons.
