Re: how do i widen my screen
Try changing the screen resolution in the display properties. If this doesn't work, then uninstall the video drivers from the device manager and reboot. The machine will automatically find the video and reinstall the drivers. Then readjust the resolution again. If the problem persists, then your screen may be going out and need replacing.

Hi Ruth, right click on the screen in an open area and select properties. In the dialogue window that opens, select the settings tab listed across the top. Then in that settings tab go to the resolution bar and slide it so the numbers go lower that will increase the size of the screen display items. Hope this is what you are looking for. Happy New Year
Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle). Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.If you cannot change the screen resolution then most likely the incorrect video driver has been installed.
Right click on your desktop and click screen resolution. Increase your resolution. If you are not able to then you need to download your display driver. Search for device manager and go down to your display. If it has a broken or missing driver then go to hps website download and install the driver.
In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to the system to check if you have the same issue with the external as well.
If you see the same issue happening on the external one as well, i would recommend you to try updating the video drivers for the system
If the external one is fine, then I believe the LCD needs to be checked or repaired
Please let me know if it was of any help.
Does your Windows "desktop" and "wallpaper" completely fill to the borders? If not, then you either need to reconfigure your video-adapter, or use the video-adapter controls to "widen" and "stretch" the image, to fill the viewable area of your screen.
