Go to the display options in Vista. Redefine the image settings and see if that solves the problem.

My computer's all windows screen has suddenly shrunk today with a black border in right and left side. Now how can I get ride of this problem and make my windows screen normal again?


It's probably the monitor either was adjusted or is having a problem.

Use the buttons on the monitor to adjust the horizontal width on the screen...This should stretch your windows display across the screen if you adjust properly. Most monitors also have an auto adjust option...you can try that too.

I can't tell you exactly what the menu options are, because I don't know the buttons on your monitor. but if you find the menu, you should be able to make the adjustment.

Good Luck

No. The optical engine is OK. You need an adjustment in the light tunel. Call a tech to do it.
