Can anyone help me? Widescreen vs. Fullscreen

    Hello.  I apologize if this isn't the right place to post this, but I'm just really frustrated and not very good with computers.  I just bought a widescreen laptop a week ago.  The first few days I had it, everything was fine, but now I think the display has somehow switched to fullscreen.  There is black space on both the left and right side of the monitor.  My background is like this as well as any movies or games I try to play.  I was just wondering if there's anything I can do about that because it's supposed to be a widescreen display.  Thanks a lot!

    So, if you play a widescreen DVD you have black bars all around?


    Yes.

    What resolution is your computer set to? Make sure you've got it set to the native widescreen resolution of the screen. Sounds like you've got it set to a normal 4:3 (non-widescreen) resolution now.

    Yep, that fixed it.  I knew it was something simple for most people but not for me.  Thanks a lot!
