You didn't list the graphics card you are using, but from your description of the problem, the monitor has a higher resolution than the graphics card can support (usually 1440 x 900, some are higher resolution)

Generally, the solution if to upgrade the graphics card, if the graphics in your system isn't easily upgradable, then you may need to upgrade to a system with adequate graphics

I run on Windows XP, pack3 and I use a CRT ViewSonic EF70 ... 17 inches The screen is not filled completely with the image from Microsoft Internet Explorer, nor with Outlook Express .... there is about 3...


two things you can do, first right click on your windows screen and look for "settings" this will open a dialog box where you can set the screen resolution. Set it lower and see if your screen is now filled. if that doesn't work go into the monitor setup (buttons on the bottom or side of the monitor) and try to set the verticle and horizontal size, since its only 3/4 of an inch you should be able to stretch the screen to fill up the space.

The picture is too big for the screen. The four buttons will only adjust colour and contrast - not size


To adjust the screen size (resolution) you have to right click on an empty place on Desktop, select Properties and then Settings. Under screen resolution change it to more, until it shows under it 1024x768, or even bigger if you want and it is possible.

ViewSonic VA2216w cannot get resolution 1680 - 1050


Dont change the screen resolution by going to computer resolution screen or the settings screen.
Open the NVIDIA graphics utility or display utility and change the settings from there as all the controls regarding the screen resolution and the color effect are now handled by NVIDIA...
