" I have tried to maximise the screen but the next time I browse the internet it reverts to the partial display"
If you are referring only to a browser or other window, try this:
Move your mouse over to the top of the window until you have the double headed arrow (up & down), left click on this and drag it up to the top of the screen, just 1/8" short of the top. Once t covers 98% of the screen, wait 10 seconds or so and X out the window to close it. Reopen it and it should open the same size.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Are you missing some of the information displayed when the screen is like this; or are you saying tha tthe display is shrunk vertically (only) but all the informaton is still there?

Can you connect the laptop to an external monitor and check if it's the same there?

Also what is the exact model of your Lenovo?

Thanks trvlr. The display is shrunk vertically (only) but as you say the information is all there albeit necessary to scroll up and down. The laptop is a LENOVO ideapad 330S.

Test the laptop’s display/on-board graphics adapter by connecting an external monitor to the laptop external display port.

Post back with how that external display looks.

Another thing. If you are using the Edge browser and an area at the top of the browser windows is expanded, look for the shadow arrow /\ or \/ and click on it. This expands or contracts the top tab area (totally unnecessary option).

Thanks for all your suggestions. I don't know why but it's gone OK again now. Unbelievable!

If the screen appeared to have a black/blank area above a (vertically) compressed display, and now it's OK... It "could" be that the ribbon cable between the display and the motherboard isn't quite as firmly attached as it ought to be. i.e. the connection at one end or t'other (probably the display end) isn't quite firmly pressed home?

If the problem returns, test the on-board adapter with an external monitor connection?
