When using some programs, the screen is too big for the monitor so that images and text disapear off the side. How do I fix this?

Looks like your monitor is rather too small for the application/programme or you do not have drivers installed for the vga (graphic card)

Most or almost all programmes use the default and common screen size of 1024 x 768. and this cannot be achieved on older monitors or even on some smaller modern monitors and also when you do not have drivers installed for the vga.

To achieve this follow the steps below
  1. Right click on the desktop
  2. choose properties
  3. click on the settings tab
  4. use the slider and set the screen resolution to 1024 x 768
  5. accept to use that new resolution
  6. click ok and you are done
NOTE: To know if drivers for the vga are installed and working properly, perform the following steps from 3 above
  • after clicking on the settings tab
  • click on advanced
  • from the new dialog box click on the "adapter" tab
  • make sure that the memory size and relevant information is not showing as -unavailable-
  • look at the picture below for example of a pc with drivers installed and the vga set to 1024 x 768.
NOTE: The screen size may sometimes go higher that what i have stated and that should also work well only if your monitor supports that size well enough.

I have a Dell Vostro 400 and two video cards. Only one card will work and it is an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200.The other one is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO. These are the specs from the two graphics cards:...

you cant join two different platform vga cards. simply because they have their own platform and have separate drivers, so they conflict each other thus causing one of them shut off or disable..

Windows has lost the display driver for your particular card. You will need to determine what the card is (it may say when you first start the machine) and redownload the drivers for it.

Kaiwah, You never said how old the MB is, but it looks like the onboard video is bad. If it is still under warranty have them fix it. If not go out and get a new board. I have seen yours for about less than $100.00 bucks
