I can't guess what "tried everything" entails. It would have been really
nice if you had taken the time to tell us. It also would have been
useful to know what changed between the time things worked and the time
they didn't. So you may have already tried these things:
1. Change your resolution to the correct one for your laptop.
Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization. Click
Personalization and then click Display Settings. Under Resolution, move
the slider to the correct size. Your laptop's native resolution will be
in the documentation that came with your computer (which may be in a
file on the hard drive) and will also be on the computer mftr.'s tech
support site for your model.
2. If that doesn't work, do a System Restore to when things were right.
To run System Restore, go to the Start Orb and in the Start Search box
type "System Restore" without the quotes. System Restore will appear in
the Programs result. Click on it, allow the UAC prompt, and follow the
3. If that doesn't work, reinstall your video drivers. Since you have a
laptop, get the drivers from the laptop mftr.'s website for your
specific model computer. Or look at any driver CDs that may have come
with your computer.
4. If none of the above works, the video chip on the motherboard may
have failed. Contact the laptop mftr.'s tech support for repair/replacement.
If none of the above is applicable or is part of "tried everything", if
