Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B120 Notebook ?

Black bars I have a Dell Inspiron B120 and one day my screen had these two black bars on both sides, how do I get rid of them?

Answers :

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:
The most likely problem is that either the graphics card or screen are going out.if its the card all you have to do is have a computer tech install a new one and they're relitivly cheap now. but if its the screen you might as well get a new computer

There are two black blobs at the bottom of my laptop computer screen. I think it was caused by some chocolate milk which I spilled on the computer by accident the other night. When i push the blob, i can move its blobiness around a little bit - it doesn't really get bigger and I'm not able to move it to the other side of the screen or anything. It stays in position, i can just kind of stretch it the same way you can push spilt milk on the table a little ways. Any suggestions on how to get rid of
