black side bars on screen

Specs: Windows XP
We had to use the recovery CD to get our old computer working halfway decent again. Now the moniter will not completely fill with the content of what is on the screen. We especially noted this when we were trying to reload our internet software and was unable to find the log in button. That's when I realized the full screen was not showing. Desktop is the same. Have tried to see if I could expand it by dragging the sides over....doesn't work, changing resolutions doesn't work. Any ideas?

Since you reinstalled Windows, you have to install all the drivers for your hardware, like your video driver and monitor drivers.

Thanks. Somehow we managed to get the internet up and running so we can access the updates.
