Right click the free area on your desktop, choose Properties, go to Settings tab and change the display resolution slider to the native resolution of your display, which is I beleive 1280x768 pixels.

A Driver is a small piece of software, that allows the Operating System to 'communicate' with a device.
Windows XP is an example of an Operating System. (O/S)
A typical device?
An Optical drive, (CD/DVD), Mouse, Keyboard, and Graphics card, are a few examples.
This is Sony eSupport, and the Drivers download page, for the Sony Vaio VGC-V517G Notebook PC,
Go down to the third file listing -
CD/DVD Drives - 2file(s)
Left-click on the + sign before,
CD/DVD Drives -2file(s)
If your optical drive is the Sony DW-D56A, download the second file listed,
(Sony DW-D56A DVD -+RW Optical Drive Firmware Update Utility)
I also suggest you download the first file listed also.
Download both files. Open one at a time. Open one file, then install the file. Then open the other file, install it.
Go to the right, and left-click on the icon that looks like a blue World, with a green down arrow under it.
On the next page go to the right, and left-click on that same icon again. (Under the - Download Now - heading)

The problem could be caused due to high refresh rate or resolution settings on the video card that are not compatible with the monitor.
Restart the computer and keep tapping on the F8 screen before the windows starts to load. Highlight the option enable VGA mode and hit enter. Your windows would start with defualt settings for the video card. Check if the problem is still there. Otherwise lower the screen resolution and refresh rate according to the monitor you have.
Thanks for using Fixya
