Screen resolution is set to 1024x768 which is the normal suggested resolution, won't go higher and lower just looks worse

Is it true of all screens and is the bottom taskbar visible if you pull the screen up?

Not sure what is meant by "true of all screens" however the only way the task bar is visible is on either the sides or the top, otherwise it disappears..

Did the video driver and/or video software come with the
laptop or was it acquired separately? I'm wondering if the
software doesn't recognize the actual monitor dimensions,
and just thinks it is 768 pixels high, when it is actually
something else.

Does everything on the screen have normal proportions?
That is, if there is a circle on your desktop wallpaper, it
is still a circle, not stretched vertically?

By "true of all screens" I mean, for example:

Desktop

Internet Explorer

My Computer etc.

Derek- yes its true with all screens, jeff- nothing has been changed with the laptop since it was bought besides the battery, which seems to be when the actual problem started

You can try this "long shot" if you wish. I have known it help at odd times when things get stuck (but not very often):

Disconnect the power and remove the battery. Hold the power of/on button in for 20 seconds. Put the computer back together and see if it helps.

If nothing else it is easy to try.
