hey dudes, i recently sent my laptop in the be serviced and since i got it back ive been having a little issue with resolution. all the fonts are too small, the icons are too small, the taskbar, and pretty much everything is too small. ive had a similar issue before and have easily solved it by adjusting the screen resolution in the display>settings tab. so i thought it would be easy enought to treat this problem the same way. currently the screen res is set at 1400x1050(which i know is incorrect). it is a 15" monitor so i think the resolution should be 1024x768. but when i change the screen res to 1024x768 is only shrinks the screen and puts a black frame around the border. so that res setting doesnt fill the screen. ive never seen anything like this before so i really have no idea where to start. any help would be much appreciated. its a HP Compaq nx9010. running XP. ps: i wasnt sure which forum to post in so im going to put this here and in the audio/visual board. cheers.
