viewing area shrinking 1" on either side. On restart it looks "wasp-waisted" or shrinking in the middle then when background and program icons come up it is shrunken top to bottom. It is a Dell CRT.

Sounds like (being a CRT) it's on it's way out. CRT's aren't an easy fix, nor a cheap or safe one either. Probably time to look for a new LCD.

Have you tried to adjust it? There are settings for those things. Are there any buttons along the bottom edge of the screen? If not, then the adjustments are done through software onscreen.

Whatever you do, DO NOT remove the cover & put your hand in the back.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.
