Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
My desktop when first turned on is not showing the start stripon the left side of the screen and has about 2 inches of black screen on the right. 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--the left side does not show up and on aol i cannot see the topic side of the screen.
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--""

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
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.
