I have XP pro, and I just installed a new videocard.  Now the right side of the window (with the red x and the scrolling bar) is nearly completely off the screen.  can I move the window?  It looks like there are buttons on the monitor that let you do stuff with the display, but I don't know how to use them.

What video card (manufacturer and model) did you install?

 

Did this card come with a CD to install the driver?

 

If it did, have you installed the driver?

But even with the driver installed, the right 1/2" of the wndow is mostly off the screen.

Did you download the driver from AMD or from their driver disc?

 

If not, download it from the link below.

I did all that, but I still have the same problem.  Could it be that I need to adjust my monitor?

To change the monitor's resolution right click on the desktop in an area without an icon and click on Properties.


In the Display Properties dialog box click the Settings tab.

 

Move the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor’s resolution, this will make the text and pictures appear smaller.

 

Click on Apply to set the resolution. 

 

If you like the resolution click on Yes and then click on OK.
