Why is my screen size smaller?


My screen size is smaller than the actual size of my monitor. There is about an inch of black on every side of the screen. How can I adjust the screen size so it would fit the entire monitor?

do you have buttons physically on your monitor to adjust vert/horz settings?

Hi,

i have a laptop so, i dont have any kind of buttons to resize the screen. Is there another way? I've tried vga= ask on lilo but i think it only works on graphic mode!!

Hi I am having this problem as well, and the buttons on my moniter have been broken for several years, and it just messed up and is crammed in this really weird position. Any ideas would be great.
