I have a Dell Inspirion 8100 laptop. Just recently I can only view about 50% of the viewable area. The remainder is just a black border all around the viewing area. Can anyone tell me how I can get the full screen back please.

If you can see the entire Windows desktop in smaller scale then it could be that the screen resolution is lower than its native res.

Right click the desktop, select Properties and click the Settings tab.

Have a look under Screen Resolution- try increasing the resolution a bit at a time until the screen returns to normal.
