Having problems with your Dell Latitude D620 Notebook ?

My Dell notebook monitor display's a small screen instead of full size. Any ideas why?

Answers :

Try changing the screen resolution (right-click on desktop->properties->settings->ok) or searching on Dell's website under the support section for display drivers for your model
This can be because of two reasons.
\015\0121) The horizontal and vertical size in the monitor settings might be changed to shrink the visible video size.
\015\0122) The resolution settings of the system might be at a very high level which makes the screen/font size very small. Adjust the graphics settings on your system accordingly.
