|This is because many laptop screens are setup so they only display fully at 1024:768. When your display is set smaller (640:480) it boxes the display. You have to somehow get your resolution bigger. |
Try this: Goto your device manager (control panel > system). Find the monitor driver (not display, the monitor). Double click on the monitor, navigate to the "driver" tab, and click "update driver". Click install a specific driver/specific location. Make sure it shows ALL hardware. In the "manufacturer" tab, select "standard monitor types", and in the "model type" select "Super VGA 1024:768". Install that driver, reboot if necessary. It is a generic driver, but it should let you change your display from 640:480 to 1024:768 and use all your display.
