Screen compressed, can not establish 1280x800 resolution
display problem. Even when I'm at the BIOS screen,
the widescreen display looks like it's compressed
to normal width at the left side of the screen.
There's a black bar down the right 20% or so of
the screen, but a strip of the display seems
to be aliased onto it.
thanks for helping.

The avtex L188DRS is a widescreen display with an aspect ratio of 16:10. Netflix plays HD not Widescreen, so you will have to check your monitor to see if you can select a 16:9 option or look for settings on the device you are using to watch Netflix and see of there are 16:10 options.
Usually this is because the display has been changed from 16:9 (widescreen) mode to 4:3 (standard) mode. On the front panel there's a button labelled "4:3 in Wide." Press this button to return to Widescreen mode. If it says "OSD Locked" then you need to hold the "Menu" key for several seconds to unlock the controls, before changing it to widescreen.
If that doesn't correct the problem then you need to adjust your computer's output resolution to a 16:9 ratio like 1920x1080 (1080p) or 1280x720 (720p.)
Reinstall again your Automatic Wallpaper change. This might be the problem is your wallpaper changer, check the setting if it is TILE, CENTER or STRETCH, only this 3 options are available on wallpaper, aside from resolution if only for viewing purposes.
You should right click on your desktop (in the blank space, not on any icon or object) and select the Properties option. This will open your Display properties (but you knew this already). Go to the Settings tab at the end, and see if you can slide the resolution bar to 1280x800. This is the native resolution for your laptop's screen. If you select 800x600, you're widescreen laptop is attempting to display a 4:3 aspect ratio, so it cuts off what it doesn't need. If you select a widescreen resolution, it should automatically adjust so that it takes up the whole screen. If you don't have the option to go any higher than 800x600, you're laptop is missing the correct video drivers and you'll need to reinstall them. You can get the video drivers for your laptop here:
Hi you can buy any 2.5" ATA harddrive .doesnt matter what make you buy them can get on Ebay, and which ever size you want,ie,80GB,100GB- you will need a copy of windows though to install the operating system
So your brother has laptop, and you can't change the screen resolution, I will take a guess that most likely the screen resolution right now is 800x600 or 640x480 which most games won't work with. The most likely culprit why you are not able to adjust the video resolution is that he hasn't installed the video driver of the laptop yet. You should install the video card driver for your laptop in other for you to change the resolution of your desktop. I suggest that you download the latest video driver from the computer manufacturer's website.
Also if he is using a older laptop, the LCD screen on a laptop has a set maximum resolution that you can use only. Older model laptops can only go as high as 800x600 upto 1024x768. Most of the new laptop nowadays have a minimum LCD panel of 1280x800 widescreen. Check the PC manual to see the max resolution the LCD can handle.
It could be that the screen is at the correct resolution, but the icons are just set to display larger (Vista allows this). Right-click on the desktop (NOT over any icons), and select "View". there you can select the size of the desktop icons.
The Resolution can be changed in Windows XP by minimizing all applications, right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties. In the Display Settings window go to the Settings tab. Here you can change the resolution. I think you are wanting to use a widescreen setup so going for a resolution of 1280x800 should fill your screen. Play around with the available settings to resize the screen.
If you are using MS Vista, you need to minimize all applications to the desktop, right click, select Personalize. In the Personalize Window click on Display Settings down the bottom, modify the resolution as appropriate.
Alternatively, you may be able to find the function key that did this to your resolution. Above your F1-F12 keys there should be a little picture. If you click on the [fn] key (near the Windows key) as well as one of the F1-F12 keys you can cause different functions to be performed. This may be how the resolution changed initially.
