    I recently brought a laptop for my son 2 weeks ago and now when windows comes on it will only display on 8 inches on the 12 inch screen. The outside is all black and windows displays only on the inside. When I start in safe mode it loads with the full screen, what could be wrong?

    Sounds like your resolution settings. Right Click anywhere on the desktop, click Properties, then click the Advanced tab that appears, and slide the slider you see to the right, then click apply until you find one you like.

    Thanks, just tried it but it only makes the window inside the black lines smaller or larger. It doesn't change the black space outside the windows.

    Go into the computer's BIOS and look for a setting that stretches the image to fill the entire screen. Also, go into Device Manager and make sure that the correct size is listed for the screen.
