Having problems with your HP Pavilion a305w (DM181AR) PC Desktop ?

HP A305W Screen Res

\015 This started like, when we got it, but I just found this site. I have an HP A305W. The screen res is at 800x600 because any other way everything is too small. The monitor seems to be broken because it can only display 800x600 correctly. It blows everything up in 800x600 but in the next screen res up on the Windows(Or Ubuntu.) slider is too small. Anyone know a solution? To 3D model it's annoying because I have to change the res to see all the menus.System specs: Award Modular BIOS v6.0, Intel Celeron CPU 2.70 GHz, 512MB RAM, Intel 82845G graphics controller. And for my OSs I run Windows XP Home (SP3.) and Xubuntu, Linux. (Ubuntu with XFCE.)Help is much appreciated. (Especially if fixed!)\015

My Dell Inspiron Laptop is having some issues with its screen. Whenever I start up the computer, it narrows itself with these black lines on either side.

The lines are about 2 inches thick and make my screen really narrow. Help me...how do I get my regular computer screen back? Here is the picture: http://tinypic.com/r/2yujbl5/5 Thanks!
