Lean screen ?

You have heard of widescreen right?

Well my computer has a problem with vertical thin screen.

All the everything is squished into a thin strip in the centre of the scrren.

It was like this when I switched on, my six year old is looking guilty but is denying all knowledge.

How do I fix this?

I have tried fiddling with the monitor settings, no good, acording to that the screen is as wide as it goes?!
I have tried screen resolution, system restore, everything I can think of and now my eyes hurt so bad from trying to read a squishy thin screen full of text.

Please help before I lose the plot and take it out on my child for causing this!!!!

Thank you,

Bobbinbreast

Reboot = restart your computer.

REBOOT = Switch the computer off for a couple of mins then switch back on.

But if it was like it when you switched on then I don't expect this to do anything. Try it anyway


Next option right click on desktop select properties - settings tab - look at slider is it set to something like 800 by 600 pixels?
