    Check your resolution settings Make sure that you select one you monitor can support. Do this Windows by right clicking the desktop and select Properties. The click the settings tab. locate the resolution size and change to a smaller one. click apply, and see it helps. Keep trying until you change to one that works. If this doesn't work, check the connector to the monitor and see if the right driver is installed

Do you have a monitor that has the buttons in front ( or back!) that can change the size, hight, and shape (tropizode?).Maybe those controls are miscontroled.Usually there is one button that acts like a MENU.press that and follow directions.
2nd) MHG8767726:: you may have to change or replace the video card, if you are using one. or you may have to " turn off " the video drivers through your BIOS, then install a new video card.The key was what you said:: "" the power went off the last time i was using it and when i turned it on again the welcome screen was not a full screen--""

Desktop screen


try booting in safe mode and see if the screen displays properly.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.



Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the 1 inch black space then your video card might be going bad or you might have a virus infection. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok then your original monitor is bad.

3 inches of black on both sides of my monitor


I have seen this when using HDMI cables from the computer side.. The TV has a resolution that is not always full screen with TV shows. There is a setting that allows you to "zoom". My TV has 4 settings: normal, stretch and crop, stretch left and right, stretch and pinch (shrug).

Monitor went black in seconds


oboy, One thing to try is the flashlight test. and get backto me with your findings. Tell me, does this lcd show a nice display only for 1-2 seconds and then a black screen when connected to a fully booted PC with Windows desktop displayed? Shine a bright flashlight 1-2 inches from panel and tell me if you see the WINDOWS START Button at lower left of screen even though screen is black! Get back to me if you can. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com BYE for now.

2 inch black on both sides of the monitor (Horizontal)


Hi Bj, Is it an aftermarket video-card? If it is, like ATI or Nvidia, Download the recent drivers for your particular card, Uninstall your Videocard from device manager, then install the software.

HP Pavilion dv6337us screen problem


Place you cursor on a blank spot on the black area, Hold the left mouse/touchpad button down and drag it back down to the bottom of the screen. That should get you back to where you want things to be.
If that fixes it, please return here to rank this as solved. If it doesn't, let me know and we'll see what else we can come up with. ;o)
