Hi. The best thing to do is to get an external monitor and connect it to your laptop. Press Fn+F8 to show the display on your ext monitor.

Half screen


Sounds like a faulty screen, has the laptop been dropped or physically damaged? can you only see half of the screen? if the other half is black and one half "fuzzy" it's most likely that the liquid crystal display has been cracked/broken. The only way to resolve this problem is usually by replacing the screen which in some cases can be as expensive as a new computer :(

Why is my screen opening at half screen?


not sure what half screen you are referring to

click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list
or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system


also settings you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal size,larger size or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes


on the top of the internet page you should see some tabs file edit view favourites tools and help click on the view tab on the drop down list you should see a zoom size %

click a different percentage also a text size you might try a different text size although this will not increase the size of the page only the text fonts inside it


if you do not see these tabs in the top toolbar

right click in the top toolbar you will see a number of toolbars and options select the menu tab this will add at it to the toolbar


or if its actually half of the screen

you will need to connect to another monitor or your television to your computer with the vga lead monitor connection


click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system


you should see a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system


when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes


or click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to monitors right click select scan for hardware changes

if you can get an extended desktop your monitor is faulty

if you cant get an exended desktop


hope it helps

Gouge in laptop screen. Less than half inch long


Hi:
is the display distorted under the scratch?

If it is, the problem could get worse. If your scratch is just on the plastic surface, the problem shouldn't get worse.

My IBM Thinkpad A21m was working fine, then all of a sudden, the display screen size is about half of normal. When I plug a desktop monitor into it, the screen is full size. What's going on?


right click on an area of BLANK desktop and select properties
Now go to the SETTINGS tab and check the resolution and adjust it to a little higher. click APPLY then OK

If all went well you should notice a difference If not report back to this post and w will see what else needs to be done

If it did make a difference then adjust it more if you need.

Tool, taskbars and text all shrunk to half normal size


Did you try Control Panel and Display, Setting tab and adjusting the resolution by moving the slider? That should take care of it.
