Am I correct, these are both screen shots from YouTube but from the two different computers ?


Not all videos are taken with the same aspect ratio and if the aspect ratio of the video is different from that of your screen it will not fill the screen. Look at an old video shot in 4:3 running on a modern computer or TV screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9 or similar. You will get a black edge where it does not fit your screen. It would have been helpful if your two screen shots had been of the same video clip !


Since you say you have "graphic card uninstall, reinstall" - I take it you mean the drivers - the only thng I can think for you to do is check the display resolution. RIGHT click on an blank piece of screen and select 'Screen resolution' from the pop-up menu. Then make sure that your resolution is set to its maximum level, normally the 'recommended' one.

Maybe the video itself is not full screen.

Try watching other videos.
