Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

\015\012If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.
\015\012
\015\012A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
\015\012On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

\015\012Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

\015\012Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
\015\012Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom

We have windows 7 and all of a sudden a big black vertical bar (about 4" wide) appeared on the screen, splitting the display. The right hand part of the screen appears on the left side of the black bar. Anyway, we need the drivers for this monitor so we can reinstall (install) them on this new computer.

Will my Dell Dimension 2400, with only the onboard Intel Extreme Graphics, power a 19" or 20" LCD flat panel monitor with any degree of success? I do have 1gig of RAM installed (all she will handle) to help with the shared video. If I go wide screen will it still fill the whole screen (widthwise) or will I have 2" black bars at each side?

Screen Problem I turned on my laptop this afternoon and immediately saw that abou 2 1/2 inches on the right hand side of the screen was gone. When the machine starts up, the wide strips is white with closely spaced horizontal lines cascading down the page. When Windows starts up the white strips turns to a solid black one and it remains like that. So, I've lost 2 1/2 inches of screen. Any idea what caused this and what the fix would be?
