Laptop Screen Height and Width

Please help. I just got a laptop and this morning everything was fine. Now, when I turned it on, the whole screen like shrunked into the middle of it and there's all this black space like 5 inches thick. Can anyone help me?? I need to change it back quickly to fullscreen which will take up the entire LCD display. What function key or keys do I use to put it back to normal? Please respond ASAP!!!

What is the native resolution of the laptop's screen, and can you post the contents of /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/XFConfig-4

Also, try Ctrl-Alt-+ That cycles through all the available resolutions. (It has to be the + on the number-pad, so you'll have to figure out how to do that on a laptop, without the numberpad)
