Hi,

try to press f11 while playing a game and check if it works. Else try to restore the computer to an earlier time when it was working fine.

To restore the computer :

click on start >> go to all programs >> click on accessories >> go to system tools >> click on system restore >> select the date when it was working fine >> click next, it will restart your computer and will change the settings back to what they were.

I just recently bought a Samsung 245BW monitor and am having problems getting the right setting. It looks OK, but I know it could look a lot better. I tried playing with different resolutions, contrast and brightness, but haven't found the right combination. I know it should be set to 1900 x 1200, but everything is way too small. Help! Thanks

No matter what I do with the settings, I cannot get webpages to show the whole page at once. There is almost always a side slide bar and bottom slide bar.

This also makes games hard to play since we can't see the whole screen without scrolling. Any suggestions? Thanks!
