I have a problem here and want suggestions to solve it. Actually its the problem with one of my friend's computer. A few days back he encountered this problem. While the PC booting, the screen becomes narrowed from two sides as if squeezed. When windows is loaded it becomes fine again. He has dual boot, one Windows 8 and the other is Windows 7 Pro. In both cases the same thing happens. The monitor is narrowed only while booting. He has a widescreen LED Monitor (17").


Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try running an auto adjust when starting.


It coule be there was an update to a driver somewhere and now the bios screen is a different resolution.

The BIOS screen should be in 640x480 default resolution, and I does this impair the users ability to enter and navigate the BIOS?
