Assuming that this isn't some weird BIOS setting, follow these directions and verify your settings:

It's not the resolution - it's the SCALING ...

If you have a bespoke graphics chip (ATI or nVidia or whatever) you should right click on an blank area in your Desktop, select the Graphics control, then access whichever page governs 'Scaling'.

You'll have a little graphic showing your screen and the percentage image of your Desktop window. By adjusting the checkboxes you'll find one that invokes full screen scaling.

Sorry for not being more precise, but each graphics card does it slightly differently.

But the SCALING is definitely where your problem lies.

It's scaling within the nVidia control panel.

On my gaming rig tower, it's scaling within its nVidia control panel too.

Thinking waaay back to my Rock Xtreme, it had an ATI graphics card and called it something else completely. :)

has an Intel Graphics controller. Funny how Graphic card producers make the same things but name the adjustable choices differently.

No - STOP!!!

This thread could go on and on, trading MY systems off against YOUR systems, then when I ran out I could rely on old systems that I've 'had' then when they've also run out - I could start mentioning systems I've worked on ... :^0

Thanks for the Peermail.

I'm happy that you've got your screen image fully filling your screen.

How's about a Thumb in recognition ??
