If your M60 has the nvidia FX Go700 video adapter as mine does you will find the resolve in the nvidia display settings. Right mouse click in an unoccupied area of the desktop. In the middle of the pop-up menu left mouse click on NVIDIA Display. Left mouse click Laptop Display. From the Quadro FX Go 700 menu , left mouse click Digital Flat Panel Display. If your problem is as I understand it, the selection in the menu that is displayed now is "centered output" to correct this, select the top menu item, "Display adapter scaling". click OK and you are back to the real world.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.
You can also use a 3rd party application like TuneUp Utilities.
Most of the icons are related to software you have installed. To shutdown these applications, the easiest way to temporarily turn them off is to run "msconfig". Try doing this as follows... Press and hold the Windows Logo Key, usually located left of the space bar. While holding this key down, press and immediately release the "R" key. In the box that appears type msconfig and press the enter key or click ok. If you have administrative access, you will see a dialog appear with several tabs across the top. Choose the startup tab and uncheck each application you do not want to run. apply the settings and restart your computer. You can always go back and uncheck choices you want to have run.
Im not sure of what it is but I have in mine that you or someone did accidentally installed a software on your computer. Or in a case that your computer is positive for some either a virus or a spyware infections. Make sure to backup first all of your important file into a USB flash drive or external hard drive then have to do a System Restore on a previous date that your laptop is working okay. By accessing the System Restore just go to START >> ACCESSORIES >> System Restore. There have to follow the instructions then the computer will restarts. If in a case still same thing happen, try another previous dates. One other thing, try to check your startup items. In order to do that type "msconfig" in the RUN windows by clicking START >> RUN. After clicking the okay button it will shows up the System Configuration Utility window. Go to the "Startup" tab and check one by one regarding the name of the application that is/are installed on your computer. You can uncheck some unneccessary application that is not required to have everytime your computer boot up into Windows desktop screen.All of the Startup items will not coz harm on your computer, but have to make surewhich is/are important for you to retain, like having the DSL to startup automatically. Hope these things help. Thank you.
do virus scan. Make sure you have only ONE anti virus system on your PC - otherwise it will slow down dramatically
disable startup items.
Go to start->RUN -> type in msconfig press enter
Then go to startup and disable all and test if speed will increase.
If it will get faster - you can enable startups one by one and see which program slowing down your PC
Try booting up the computer in safe mode and then check for the startup items, if you see any program in the startup list try to remove it, close all the applications and then shut down and reboot your computer. This will definetly remove the application thats either not installed properly or thats trying to create a problem in booting up your computer.
