Have you tried replacing some of the components involved with displaying the video on the screen? Try the following:

Hook the monitor up to another computer (If it's a laptop, hook it up to an external monitor)

Replace the video cable

Try these and post your results and we can help you further.

If you have black space where there is no video displayed at the sides or at the top and bottom on the screen, of both of those, you have set the screen Resolution to the wrong setting.

RIGHT click on a blank place on the main desktop screen, select Properties, Settings tab, change the Resolution setting so that the display fills the screen and is not out of proportion horizontally or vertically. .

All LCD, LED LCD, and Plasma displays (if you're using a Plasma TV to display Windows) have a specified "native" or "optimal" resolution setting the display looks best in when set to. On a laptop or netbook, that's usually the highest resolution you can select.

If you don't know what that "native" or "optimal" resolution is, tell us what the make and model of your brand name laptop or netbook is, or tell us what the make and model of the external computer monitor or TV is - that's on a label on the back of the monitor or TV.
