Well, my dad's computer actually. I got him online a couple years ago and he got a new one and I can't figure out how to fix this. He's pretty up in years and isn't the least computer savvy - he just wants it to work. Me too, he can be a pain.
Here's the scoop. He got one of those eMachines. nVidia GeForce 6150 video display. The problem is that some websites that used to take up the whole screen are now scrolled down the middle of the browser with large margins on either side. I pull up the same sites on his old computer (and mine) and they take up the entire screen, but on this new one it's centered and slim down the middle.
a) Adjusting the view size on the browser.
Using FireFox 3 and IE.
c) Reloading the chipset and display drivers.
d) Fiddling with the resolution.
I don't know if it's an nVidia thing or a monitor thing - I'm handy with computers if I have to be, but I'm not an expert. I tried all the obvious stuff (I think) but can't seem to get that to work and my dad is driving me NUTS with this.
Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
