Got a computer im working on and Im stumped...

Its a Dell Inspirion B120, and when in windows... their are to 1 inch thick black bars on both sides of the screen horizontally.

It is a windows issue, because it doesnt appear when in bios, and executing diagnostic tools outside of windows.

Any ideas?
thanks.

Try uninstalling, then reinstalling the video drivers.

If it continues, I'd say that the video chip/card is dying.

What size of monitor do you have, and what is your resolution set too?
