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.

Boughtcomputer plugged in monitor and it is not fitting on the screen missing about 2 inches what do I do?


You need to set the approprite resolution for your screen. To do this do the following:
1.)Right click on the desktop and select Properties.
2.)In the settings tab you will see the resolution slider bar.
3.)In your case you want to increase the resolution, you do this by moving the bar to the right.
4.)Stop on the maximum resolution supported by your monitor, usually the one at the right most setting.
5.)Click apply to save then ok.


All done!!!
