Hiclarki,

Based on your brief description, I am inclined to suggest that you (re)install your video adapter driver(s). To my knowledge, the Tecra8000 uses a NeoMagic NM2200 [MagicGraph 256AV] (2.5 MB RAM). You can try downloading theOS appropriate driver from the Toshiba website or do a Google.

Thereafter, you need to configure the monitor selection in your Display Properties and set it to "TFT LCD Display/Panel/Screen".

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Dell sx2210 how do I change the size of the screen?


  1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, open Display. Note: In Microsoft Windows , depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that saysSwitch to Classic View.
  3. In the Display Properties window, click on theSettings tab.
  4. Locate the Screen resolution slider on the left-hand side of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is 800 by 600 pixels or 1024 by 768 pixels, possibly higher if you're using a 19" or larger monitor. The "best" setting is highly subjective to your personal preferences.

How do i change my pictures to fit my laptop screen


Please give more details on what you are trying to do.

If you want to take a picture and make it the total size of your screen as the background of your screen, then just right click on the picture and select Set as Desktop Background. If the size is not what you want then go into the display properties and select the Desktop tab and change the Position to be Stretch. Stretch will fill the whole screen with the picture. Tile will fill the whole screen with multiple little pictures. Center will put the picture in the middle of the screen.

To get to the display properties click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization.

You can also get the display properties by Right Click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties.

Hello, I have a 22'' ASUS VK222H Monitor hook up to my computer. I had Vista Business and everything was good. I installed Windows 7 today. Now I see only about 3/4 (three fourth) of the screen is occupied...


i would go to asus or computer manufacture's site, or microsoft and find and download the driver manually. Then install it by double-clicking the downlaoded driver file.
I also recommend right clicking on screen, go to properties or display properties, and only use the windows 7 them and not a modified or customized theme.

Game display only occupies the center portion of monitor not full screen. Thinkpad A22m w/ windows xp home SP3. Can't get the game screen to display on the full monitor screen.


It is most likely that the game is unable to operate at the resolution that your screen is set at and is compensating by sizing the game window to the required size. You might change you display resolution to a lower setting.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

Sony vaio pcv-w30 full display on screen


Download the video driver for your laptop:

Go to this page:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVW30

Go to the video section and download the file to the desktop. Then go ahead and install it and after the laptop reboots at that point you should be able to display with the whole screen.

My main screen is off center for game playing so I cannot get to all my buttons for choices--they are off the edge of the screen.


The screen could not have shifted only for one game or prog. It may be larger on all side and you notice it during the game when you want to access the buttons. So, press the settings button and reduce the screen size to occupy the whole physical screen (ie, max and no more). Now you will get the whole picture on the entire screen.

Screen is blinking very frequently


Hello, this is a known problem with the model of that laptop. You will also notice in safe mode your screen will not flicker but in normal mode it will flicker.
Your laptop should still be under warranty and needs the LCD replaced.

New w2k install


After a fresh install you need to go through and reinstall all the drivers for each internal/external component. Then when you have installed the video driver you can right click your desktop to access your Display properties to change the settings. The link below is all the drivers you need. Hope this helped.
