Hi - I cracked my computer screen. I have windows Vista and a Gateway computer. Everythings fine but I can't see the bottom right of my screen where it's crack (its all black). This is where the time dispalys, which I can no longer see. Is there a way to change my default screen display size so it stops just short of the crack and not have a blacked out portion on the affective displayed screen? I tried playing with the resolution(Control Panel -> appearance and personalization -> Personalization -> Display Settings -> Advanced -> Intel Graphics Accelerator Media -> Graphics Properties -> Display Settings.) There I played with different screen resolutions and "aspect ration options", however my control on how I wanted it was still limited. I could either get the screen to where it do not chow the defective area, however the affective screen size was reduced too much and there were large boarders on either the top/bottom, sides, or both. So far its close when I change the resolution Screen Resolution from 1280 x 800 to 1280 x 768, however part of the time is still hidden by the defective area. I think a screen resolution of 1260 x 768 would work out well, but I am not given this much control and only have certain preset options to choose from. Any suggestions??
