Just got one of our older pc's back from being serviced and I don't know how to get the desktop display to cover the whole screen. There are black borders on either side, and I can't find a way to fix the side to side manually. I was able to fix top to bottom but that is it. Veiwing this monitor is very difficult...........Help
Thx
Katey :thumbsup:

PLEASE......... Can't anyone help??? The pc I need help with is used by my kids and my daughter has been getting headaches from using it with the way the display is now. If I don't figure out how to fix it she won't be able to finish her homework. The OS is windows me and the monitor is an older Packard bell if that helps

Sorry, just a silly blonde here who doesn't know much about computers..... :flowers:

Hello and welcome to BC briannab1


Have you tried the buttons on the monitor? Almost all of them have settings that can be changed from there. If you can post any name/model numbers on the front of it, it would help me help you.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

I have tried the buttons on the monitor, that is how I was able to fix top to bottom. If there is a side to side button I cannot find it. It is a Packard Bell monitor model # 14025 50/60 Hz


Jeservices:

Do you have Windows 98, by any chance?

I may have found a driver that you can use. Because it may need to restart the computer for the changes to take effect, you may want to save all your work prior to clicking this link. This is a direct link, meaning, as soon as you click the link, the download will start.
