not displaying on the entire laptop screen

Specs: Windows XP
Hello I have a dell xps and when it ran out of battery and i turned it back on the window does not fill the entire screen.
There is a 1inch border on the right and left sides of the screen and all the letters and icons are big.
I have looked in the display features and can't seem to find out how to fix the problem.
Thanks. ad

sounds like the graphics driver went south on you and reset the resolution...

go to dell site and look for support/drivers for that computer model. there should be a page of drivers specifically for that computer and the xp operating system. Find the video driver and download it to your desktop.
shut down all windows and double click the file and it will reinstall the driver...during this time it will ask you to set the correct video screen(resolution) and you should be ok from there on out!

Change Is Good
