You may need to use some of the menu buttons on the TV\monitor itself in order to manually adjust this and prevent the auto adjust resolution from taking place. Additionally you may need to specify whether it's 16:9 or 4:3 resolution from within the picture settings.

    Screen magnified.. right clicking nothing happening

    Try using the start menu to open the control panel and select Adjust Screen Resolution. If adjust the resolution doesn't solve the problem or you can't access the control panel in any way you may have a more serious software problem at hand and should see a computer repair shop.

    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.)

    I cant see but half tge game on the screen. the other half is beyond the right side of the monitor. please help

    In order to solve this problem you will need to adjust the games resolution in order to match your screen or vice versa. In order to do so in the game it should be under your video options menu. In order to adjust windows to match the game simply right click anywhere on the desktop click on personalize or properties, then click on appearance. From there you can adjust your screen size to match. simply slide the bar left or right depending on whether you want the screen to be smaller or larger and then click apply.
