The Monitor Settings in the Control Panel - Display

With some elderly CRT monitors it just ain't possible on the actual monitor controls.

But - sometimes adjusting the refresh rate will give a picture of different dimensions, of which some rates may be able to fill the whole screen. Unfortuately with these elderly monitors, they can't accept high refresh rates - you may be limited to 72Hz or 75Hz only.

If it's a modern monitor, it might simply be faulty.

Had the same problem this year,after consulting the forum and trying various methods,had to admit defeat, and so purchased me a stonkong 17" LG which is absolutely spot on !!

Does the Monitor have any physical buttons or nobs on it?

What you have described should be fairly easily adjusted if you can find the controls.
