Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Display/Adjust resolution. Try higher resolutions on the list.
If that doesn't do it I would go to Device Manager, and update driver for display adapter. May need to go to the manufacturers website
and Support Tab for drivers.

SOURCE: How to use buttons on front of Monitor for vertical Horizontal settings

Oldie, The first thing to do is set the monitor resolution, color depth and monitor refresh rate to what you want then adjust the monitor accordingly. Adjust resolution, color depth and refresh rate for Windows 2000/XP: -Right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears. -From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab. -In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) experiment with the resolutions and see what you like. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most colors) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -Typically you would want to set it at 70 Hertz or better. The higher the setting the less flicker you will notice, however, there is always a trade off. I would start with 70 Hertz and gradually move up; at some point your monitor will reach a setting it can?t support. If the screen blanks out Windows will reset back to the previous settings as long as you don?t hit any keys. -click the OK button twice. More to follow?.

SOURCE: only 3/4 of the screen is being shown...

Ok so I have actually had this happen to me before. My best guess would be that it is a problem with the video card. There may be some video drivers that you need to download. The other explenation might be that the video card over heated.

When it happened to me the whole screen went blank all together after the login screen so at that point it wouldn't load Windows. If you're still covered under the warranty then you're good and set and you could get it within a couple of weeks if you send it to a tech service (preferably the company that built it)


Hope this helped

SOURCE: Black Screen-No picture

Normally when an LCD monitor goes black, it is because the inverter goes out (which essentially is the backlighting).  To verify this problem, hold a flashlight up to the monitor while it is turned on and see if you can "see" the picture.  If this is the case, it could be repaired, but realistically, the cost to replace it might be cheaper (and you would probably end up with a larger monitor to boot).

Changing the resolution on the screen is the job of the graphics card on the computer. Either run windows update or visit the card manufacturer support site and search for an appropriate driver or software package. ATI and Nvidia both have "control panel" add-ins that will come up when you right click on the display. scroll down to the control panel and all your settings will be there.

I accidentally hit the auto-adjustment button on my monitor. Now, the an inch of of my screen from left to right is black. Not even my mouse can go into the black space.


Did you try hitting the Auto adjust again to possibly shut it off. Quite often the buttons work as off and on buttons such as the Caps Lock. you hit it and it's on. You hit it again. It's off. If you hit the Auto adjust it might shut off and re-adjust your screen to the original setting you had. ....don't forget that you made other adjustments to compensate for the mal adjustment that will need to be fixxed. good luck.

On laptops there is a key sequence that you can switch between monitor states, it's possible you have it in Laptop screen only. Look for the "Fn" key and then hit the Monitor button (it has a picture of a monitor) usually this is somewhere around F5 or F8.

thats really odd that windows 7 doesnt give you full screen but the game does? change your resolution settings around to see if that helps altho i doubt it. check menu settings on your monitor and see if you can change its aspect ratio

Hi, you probably have to set the correct resolution that fits on your monitor. The correct resolution is: 1920x1200 You can set it by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing "Screen Resolution" in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you use Windows XP, right-click on your desktop and choose "Properties" Then open the rightmost tab to choose the resolution

My screen is x X y inches. The windows page doesnt fit into it. There is one inch of black space on the monitor on the left and one inch of my windows screen is lost on the right!!!!!!!


With the on-screen controls, select Auto-Adjust. This should set suitable defaults based on the incoming signal. If you are using the VGA connector and the position still needs to be adjusted, use the on-screen controls to shift the displayed image to the proper location (under Display Settings -> Horizontal Position).
