Question about Sony Computers & Internet
This is caused by the resoultion of the graphics card not being set to suit your monitor.
Right click on the desktop, and choose 'properties' from the list
a new dialog box will appear called 'display properties'
along the top is a series of tabs, the last one is called 'settings'
click on this and you will then see details of your screen resoulution.
Halfway is a slide bar called screen resoultion
less -------|------- more
move the slider untill the numbers change to 1024 by 768 pixels
to the right is another box called colour quality - change this to 'highest (32bit)
the screen will briefly go black then you will see the desktop, you will get a confirmation box asking along the lines of 'do you wish to keep these settings' click yes to this
have a play with the desktop, open some windows and see if they are now fully visable to you without having to scroll.
You can go back and change your resoultion anytime you want, by following the above. But take note, some monitors will not display all the resoultions in the list, you will get a message to say if it is or not. Just play with the settings untill your happy.
Hope this helps

Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.

Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.
