I am having problems with not being able to see the right hand side of some windows in WinXP and some programs that I run in WinXp. I have changed font sizes, the DPI size is normal, I have tried changing screen resolutions, and there's no way to stretch out the window to see further to the right. I've posted this on several forums and no luck so far.. and I've had the problem for almost a year now.. any ideas? Here's a couple of pics so you can see what I mean.. :thumbsup:

Is this a problem that recently began (a day you can pin down)?

Did you add or delete any hardware or software before this occurred?

What size is your screen and what resolution is it set for?

I've had this problem for almost a year now.. I've tried re-installing the video drivers, but that didnt' help.

It's been over a year and I can't recall if I had downloaded anything, but I don't think so or I would've realized that was causing it and uninstalled it.

My screen size is 17inch and my resolution is set to 1024x768

Thanks, Tanya

You said that you re-installed the video drivers. Have you uninstalled them and then installed the latest version that's available from the manufacturer's website? This might solve the issue if your copy of the drivers is corrupted.

Should that not work, then you might want to try a repair install of XP: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Yep, installing/reinstalling is a major PITA!

I'd suggest a disk imaging utility (there are free ones, but I like Acronis True Image ~$50 US) at this point. That way you can make an image of your hard drive and store it. The next time that something like this happens it'll only take about 20 minutes to put the computer back the way it was today!
