    Have you tried to resize the image using your monitor controls? Depending on your monitor, this is either a manual operation or may be done automatically.

    Do you have a CRT or an LCD display??

    What are you in 800x600 for man! If it's all new stuff you should be looking at 1280x1024!

    But just the same, sounds like the monitor isn't auto-adjusting itself. Use the controls like they said.

    Go to your control panel

    FIrst go to start control panel then go to your apperence and themes then go to change to screen resolution. This should help.

    Good luck
