Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 8200 Notebook ?

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen

\015 My boyfriend was messing around with different resolutions on my Dell Inspiron laptop one day. When he was finished, everything was normal looking... When I went to open it up the next day, the screen was in the middle of the monitor surrounded by a 1" thick black border. If I change the resolution to 1600x1200 to make the screen fit, the icons & font are so tiny it's useless. I've tried messing with the other resolutions, changing the DPI, restarting it a million times... I don't know what else I can do at this point. If anyone can help it would be GREATLY appreciated!\015
