Redhat 9.0 screen resolution

I just finished installing Redhat 9.0 on my computer. I am really enjoying it, but there is a thick black rectangle all around the edge of my screen. Could it be the resolution? Refresh rate? I don't know what it is, but it's kind of annoying.

I set the resolution at 1024 by 768, it's true colors 24 bit. I don't know what else to do, should I just adjust my moniter? Change the refresh rate? I'm confused. Any help in great detail would be greatly apprectiated. Thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind I figured it out. Thanks anyway.

Others might have the same problem. So what was the solution?
