Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 4000 Notebook ?

Display area is "shrunken" on Dell Inspiron 4000 display

\015 The viewable display area only fills about 75% of the screen. All proportions are correct.\015\012\015\012This occurred after a possible improper shutdown. One or two of the indicator lights (battery & hard drive?) remained on after shutdown and there was a very faint ticking sound from the area of the hard drive.\015\012\015\012Lingering lights and ticking did not occur after most recent reboot and shutdown.\015\012\015\012Laptop and applications appear to be functioning properly except for the shrunken display area.\015

Answers :

Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Monitor, set it to Default monitor and click OK.
\015\012Does the display now fill the screen?
\015\012If this doesn't work, go to the DELL WEB site and see if there a driver for the display. To ensure you get the correct driver for your model laptop, use the Service Tag number (which is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop) to the download page for your model laptop, download the correct Windows XP or Vista version of the driver from :-
