Hi
Can someone please help me I have a 1 1/2" black border around my desktop I have tried the desktop settings but am unable to move the slider on the screen area it is stuck on 640x480 with 2 or 16 colours. I am running windows 98 on a compaq armada m700 laptop.

It would appear that you are running in windows standard vga mode.

Do you have the drivers for the graphics card \chip?

If you do go to control panel \ system \ device manager and pick display adapter. They may be a yellow exclamation mark there. Delete this and reboot. Insert the graphics card \ chip driver. Windows will find the graphics and ask for the driver. Point to the driver and install.

As the the village idiot says, and your model has a 14.1 screen with a resolution of 1024x768. Once set back to this resolution the display will fill the screen corner to corner.

Yes you have not got the graphics driver installed.Windows is using it's generic driver for the chip.

Check your other thread for a link to the driver.
