  1. Hey good people, i just have a quick question. I have just re-installed windows xp prof. on my Dell latitude d600 laptop. Everything went well with my installation, but my screen resolution is smaller than the monitor. I'm at 800/600 and it still dosen't fit my laptop monitor. I know there's a way to make it fit the Laptop monitor, but i just cant figure it out. Any help would be gladly appreciated.

    Right click on a blank part of the desktop and select properties, then the settings tab.

    Increase the screen resolution.

    click apply/ok.

    Regards Howard :)
