Try your monitor with another computer and check if you can adjust the resolution or not.

Cannot adjust that fit to the screen

Install the correct video drivers for your computer video card and also install the correct monitor driver if available. You can usually find these at your computer manufacturers support web page. Once installed you should be able to adjust the video resolution to fit the entire screen.

Good luck

The pictures are too wide all people look fat

You most likely have a wide screen and the screen resolution needs to be adjusted to suit the monitor.
Go to the Control Panel - Display and adjust the screen resolution until you get a normal image and correct screen aspect screen ratio. Start with a screen resolution of 1024X768 and gradually increase it until you get an image that suits your screen.

Can't see items on bottom of screen

Use the adjustments on your monitor to scroll the screen display up a little bit. (Press enter to use the OSD, adjust the geometry or vertical position.)
If you're talking about the taskbar itself, on the other hand, and you are using xp, see here.
Then follow these instructions to scan your system for malware.

It shouldnt be a problem with the monitor, but with the computer. Unless adjusting the resolution solves the problem, im not sure what to do. Sorry, hopefully that helps.
