    What happens when you try to switch to full screen mode? What are using to play videos? What is make/model of your video card please? Or if it's on board or you don't don't what is make/model of your pc?

Can I get rid of borders above and below my screen when watching netfix on my pc


What's probably going on here is that the video your watching is a different aspect ratio than your monitor. So for the video to completely cover your monitor it would either need to be stretched, or have part of the video cropped off on the sides. Instead of distorting or cropping the image the black borders are shown. Netflix doesn't provide a way to change this currently. A work-around though, would be to change the resolution on your monitor. So if for example your monitor has an aspect ratio of 16:10 (like 1920x1200), and the video is 16:9 (like 1920x1080), you would change your resolution from 1920x1200 down to 1920x1080. (9/16 * 1920 = 1080)

I have two monitors. On one I wish to watch a video in full screen mode, nevertheless, when I open an application on the second monitor, the video switches to normal size. How to avoid this?


This is dependent on the graphics card and supporting software. For ATI/AMD graphics cards, the Catalyst Control Center may allow you to adjust the settings to enable this feature. For NVidia cards the NVidia control panel may provide the correct setting.
In general you can only maximise windows when using multiple displays, rather than switching to full screen on one and windowed on the other.

When playing a game or watching a video clip from you tube and I click full screen mode it goes all white. Why is that it only does in full screen and since I had to update adobe for the game to work?


Your PC wont support full screen, it may have to do with the video card you have installed, if you have an onboard Video card and this happens it could be that it is too much video memory and your computer is working too hard to make it go full screen, also could be a driver issue. First thing I need to know is if you have an attached video card or an onboard then we can talk. Good luck my friend.

I cant seem to be able to watch a dvd full screen on my hp dv6000 only in a letterbox in quickplay


Have you tried another video program? I'm unfamiliar with quickplay, could you mean quicktime? Please try VLC (www.videolan.org/vlc) as an alternative for testing purposes.
