When I turn on my computer and the home page is displayed, it does not fill up the screen. I have to manually increase the size to 141% so it fills the screen. And I must do this every time I turn the computer on. Any suggestions to solve this problem?
Use the monitor hardware controls on the actual monitor, and if that doesnt work, you have to change the display settings. which you would get to by right clicking your desktop interface, going to properties and display.

Here is a good tutorial on how to adjust the screen resolution on a mac: How to change Mac screen resolution Macworld . However, it may be that the output from your computer doesn't match the size of the screen you have. Did you check to see that the computer can output an image that matches the size of your screen. That is a common problem.
this sounds like the screen may be trying to display a resolution higher than the screen can support. Try booting up in safe mode and seeing if you can see your desktop. Also is this the only monitor connected to your PC or is this a dual screen setup? If it is dual screen you may not have your second montor turned on.
I'm not sure what operating system you're using nor what you mean by your "home page". If you mean your browser window doesn't fill the whole Windows desktop, what happens when you maximize the window?
If your desktop looks huge with tiny icons (and tiny-looking windows, if you have any open and not maximized) all clustered in the middle of the screen, your display resolution may be set higher than you're accustomed to. In most versions of Windows you can go to Control Panel | Display, see what your current resolution is, and try adjusting it. The higher the numbers, the "bigger" the desktop area (and the smaller the icons and everything else). If you adjust the resolution higher than your monitor can handle, you may lose your display and have to restart the computer in something like Safe mode to get to Control Panel and readjust it. If you adjust the resolution lower (or run in Safe Mode) your icons may not fit on the smaller desktop and may get scrambled. In that case, first straighten out the display resolution, then move your icons back where you want them.
There seems to be only one driver for all Operating Systems for this monitor. You can try going into the OSD (On Screen Display) and adjusting the color. You can also check to see if there is an updated video driver for your video card. This may be your problem rather than the monitor.
Here's a link to the Philips Support page for your monitor where you can download the User's Manual and driver. But it seems the driver has not been updated since 2005.
There is nothing wrong with the monitor, the issue is that the web page you are looking at is designed for a lower resolution than you LCD is set for (Web pages are normally designed for 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768) you like have a wide aspect ratio monitor.
As I sit here writing this on my 12" wide aspect LCD I have a 2" wide white space on each side of my screen due to my 1280 x 800 aspect ratio.
The issue is one of WEB PAGE DESIGN not the fault of your computer video settings. The web page is written using page frames and fixed aspect ration settings to ensure that the page displays properly regardless of monitor type.
If you had a high end LCD (WUXGA 1920 x 1200), the web page would fill the upper left 1/4 of the screen.
If you lower the resolution of your display, then you'll have fuzzy icons and text, so essentially, get used to it.
Eventually, wed design will catch up with current display technology.
With your work sheet opened (reduce its size by clicking once on the Square in the right hand corner of the page, just make it a bit smaller than your screen), than left click & hold drag it to the second monitor. Once there you can maximize the page to fill the screen.
If you post back with your video adapter information I may be able to help with other settings for your video card. You can find this information by opening control panel, open System. Your display window will open. Click on the settings tab. Than click the Advanced button. Click the Adapter tab in the next window.
Your Adapter Information is listed there.
sounds like you need to run a screen config wizard. If you have a true Nvidia driver you can do this. Otherwise, re-download the driver from the main website http://www.nvidia.com/page/home.html
and it'll work for you
