Is it still under warranty? It sounds as though the LCD is malfunctioning if it is within the first year of purchase Apple will fix free of charge.

How do I make iMac screen smaller so I can see the whole screen

Use System Preferences which is available from the Apple menu at the upper-left corner of the screen. O[pen that then click on Displays and you can change the settings, alothough I can't see why your settings should be wrong unless you have changed them previously or you are using the imac as an external monitor...

Smudge, streaks, rays imac 24 monitor clean inside LCD

Yep, you can clean the LCD and the inside of the glass, but you will need two suction cups for glass. The ones for picking up window glass work. Lay the computer on its back. Place the suction cups at the upper corners and pull straight away from the table. The glass is held on by magnets and may have tabs at the bottom, so once the magnets are loose you may have to lift the glass away from the bottom edge. Be careful, it isn't safety glass and can break if dropped. The hardest part is keeping dust from getting between the screen and the glass during reassembly. Try working in a dust-free environment. I use two micro-fiber cloths, one with screen cleaner and one dry. You can't believe how much static builds up on the inside of the glass. It just sucks in dust. Don't wear fleece or you'll end up with fuzz as well. Stand your iMac up to reinstall. Clean the outside of the glass so you can see any dust on the inside. Place the bottom in place first. As you prepare to move the top into place, have light behind and above you and view the glass with the black screen behind. You can see most of the dust that way. Good luck.

When on internet content is not full page on a imac 24"

Click and hold the bottom right corner of the screen with the tiny 45 degree angle lines on it. While holding down the left click pull this to the right and down. If the screen if not full left then grab the browser just to the right of the Green button and pull it where you want it to be.

Vertical line in imac 17" core 2 duo intel 2006 model

Attach an external monitor (you may need to buy an adapter to try this) and turn on Display Mirroring in the Display preferences.
If the same symptom shows on the external monitor, then you've got a video card problem. If not, I'd say you're screen has some kind of damage of failure.
Sorry, but either one is likely going to require a trip to the Apple Hospital.
At least with the display problem, you could use the external monitor until repaired.

In the apple list,

you've most likely got something running that is competing with processing time for your player. i'd open up activity monitor and see what processes are highest on CPU % usage. the ones that look elective (not system-related), turn 'em off. turn off spotlight for a sec too. then test your import into itunes afterwards. is it still slow?
