Thinkpad t22 video

I recently installed Mandriva on my thinkpad t22 and am having some issues with the display. I set the monitor size to 1400x1050 but I'm still not utilizing the full screen (black on both sides of the display) I'm new to linux can anyone ofer a suggestion?

hmm, sounds odd, i recently tried a live eval disc of suse 9.1 on my dell (also with a 1400 x 1050 screen) and that worked fine... what are the specs of your thinkpad? if we (the LQ community) know this, then we can start to see if there is a minor hardware conflict etc. i know you've set the monitor to 1400 x 1050, but have you set the screen resolution to that as well? the monitor resolution is just the max size the monitor will go but unless you set the screen size as well that could be all your problem is. just have a look to see if gnome or kde (or whichever gui you use) is set to 1400x1050 as well...

sorry can't be more helpful at this time, but i hope it might just be enough
