Answers :

You can adjust your display through 1 of two ways.
\015\0121. Somewhere on your monitor are buttons that allow you to adjust your screen position, ( left- right-up-down, widen / stretch in both direction, up & down at the same time & left & right at the same time. If you still have the manual for the monitor it will explain how to do this. Every monitor is not the same & each monitor has their own way to adjust monitor positions.
\015\012
\015\0122. This might be a bit harder but all you'll need is youe mouse.
\015\012 Find an emty space on your desktop, ( yeah I know it's messed up right now, did I mention this would be harder?).
\015\012I want you to right click once on your desktop & that will open a small pop-up menue. Left click once on Properties
\015\012
\015\012You have just opened your display Properties. ( I need to mention just like the monitor adjustment screen is different from one to another, your video card will also be different.) My instructions should be close for you to adjust your screen.
\015\012
\015\012So you have Display Properties on your screen. Click the settings tab, than click the Advanced button. Here click the Adapter tab. Look down & you'll see a button ( List All Modes).
\015\012Click it. The mode screen will open. There is a scroll bar on the right. Slide the scroll bar down & pick out the setting you want.
\015\012Most people use setting - 1024 by 768, True Color (32bit), 60 Hertz
\015\012Click Ok & than Apply. Your screen should adjust it's self.
\015\012If it does not, than someone messed with the monitor adjustments & you'll have to re-adjust from the monitor.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck!
