When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Black border with some channels


Hi,
if you mean the left and right sides of screen, look for a button on remote might be labeled several things, like picture size, aspect etc.. the borders pop up when you go to a non high def channel. some chs put borders all around the picture in those cases you won't be able to get rid of those.

HELP! Laptop screen has shrunk... black border on screen.


Big Lebowski - this refers to an issue with a laptop.
No CRT on a laptop.
It is more likely a driver issue.
Go to dell.com, look for support, put in your service tag & update the graphics drivers.

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen


Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

James

Screen display size on Thinkpad A22p


your system might have damaged the systems video drivers and reverted to legacy.
try to re-install the display drivers again.
if you look in the system/device manager for the display it may just say vga , which can only give you 800x600 native mode.
if you right click on the desktop /properties
advanced /display adapter it should have the name of your video card.

C840 resolution difficulties...


The type of screen you have is a UXGA screen. the optimal resolution for that is 1600 x 1200. changing the resolution for that will distort the screen causing black borders. If a computer has a 15.0+" SXGA+ screen with an optimized resolution of 1400x1050 and the screen's current resolution is set to 1280x1024 pixels, the display will shrink resulting in a black border surrounding the edges of the screen. Also, all other lower resolutions may be stretched to fit the screen. No border will be visible, but fonts may appear slightly fuzzy.
