Have you tried to adjust the screen resolution? Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Change Screen Resolution...Click on the slider and move it to the right towards more.

If that doesn't work for you, then it may be a driver issue. If you know the make and model of your computer go to their support website and search for drivers there.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Have you tried to update the driver in Device Manager. Sometimes that will work.

Is this a custom build or a brand name computer?

Did you install the drivers for the motherboard after the installation of the OS?

If you purchased it over the counter in a store it's not likely to be a custom build.
