Specs: Windows XP, Pentium R 4
I just recently added a widescreen monitor to laptop to use at my desk. The screen however appears like a widescreen movie. The horizontal field is complete but there are black vertical spaces at the top and bottom of the screen. Any Suggestions?

Try setting the resolution to one with a smaller horizontal setting. You might have to play with the settings a bit to find the best one.

FWIW to XP users: When you click on the 'Command Prompt' you are just causing the 'Command prompt' to be displayed. This prompt gives you access to NTVDM.EXE, the 'NT Virtual DOS Manager'.
