I have a Samsung LED screen (wide) 19 inch and a saphire radeon 6770 graphics card (2gb) installed. everything was well and the screen was fully occupied and all that! but the last time i switched it on, i find that in an open window, the whole window occupies the full screen (ie the tittle, menu bar, the borders of the window etc.) but the content inside the window doesn't seem to fit the whole screen, it is limited to the centre of the "window". And at the sides i can see the layout or background colour of the particular page that i have opened...

to understand the situation better..please take a look at these pics (screenshots):

@tullie..it just bloats the whole thing...the text and all that also become bigger..but see the pics..the text are of proper size...but still..the ends are empty... for example..in tat facebook pic...the fb logo was supposed to be at the extreme left and the username and password at the extreme right (with the same text size)...

Hover the mouse over left or right-hand side, double-headed arrow should appear, click and hold on arrow and move left or right.

From the pictures you have shown I cannot see any problems. I have a 19" LCD Monitor set at 1280 X 1020 this shows a small boarder either side, if I use my Samsung 32" wide screen 1920 X 1080 the boarders are wider.

Consider the text on the web page as a fixed size equivalent to your monitor the only difference is the Monitor is Landscape and the text is portrait. If you was to make the page fit the width of the screen you would loose most of the page at the bottom and would have to scroll down to read it.

Try again, but first click on Icon next to red X at top right corner!

The only way I can get the it to fit the full screen would be to change the screen resolution to a lower setting and not the recommended setting.

If you have updated the drivers for the Radeon 6770 graphics card this could have changed the setting to the recommended one creating the boarder.

I'm with BRYNIT in that it looks like that normally. The only way I can get it to fit the screen is use zoom. Which browser are you using?

Minimize it.

But reducing the Resolution should be the way to go, but I know from experience that does not always produce the required result.
