Specs: Windows XP, hp pavilion laptop T2400@1.83Ghz 2Gb RAM
when i log onto my office computer from my laptop there is a black rectangular band all around the edge of my screen. I have changed the resolution of my laptop and my office computer with no effect, i have changed it to full screen view again with no effect. This is a problem which only began recently, and i have not changed anything on my laptop as far as I know? I logged on with a different laptop and this does not happen?
Does anyone have any suggestions as the viewable screen inside the black oblong is difficult to work with.
Thank you.

Turn off MS Auto Updates, a driver that is not compatible may have been downloaded.

Go into Device Manager & click on the + next to Display adapters.

Right click on the driver & uninstall.

Reboot & let Windows put a new copy on the comp.
