Viewing screen has shrunk

Twice our screen has shrunk. That is the screen you look at is not filling the whole monitor. 

I fixed it last time using aspect ratio and resolution - this was after hours of trial and error.

I have tried again this time. I have been able to improve it but there are still black spaces at either end of the screen. The screen content is somewhat distorted too.

I have updated the driver.

I bought the monitor as a Samsung TV screen 11 years ago, on the advice of the salesman when I bought a HP desktop. We have a new desktop now and it has Windows 10 on it and the lastest Microsoft office and Norton virus scanner.

What else can I do. 

I currently have the resolution set at 1680x1050 - this is the best view I am able to gt. I have tried all the other resolutions.

Carolinemhms, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


In order for us to provide the most accurate assistance on this scenario, we just wanted to confirm a few details about your system:

What is the model of the motherboard?

If this is a laptop, what is the model of it?

What is the specific model of the monitor that is showing the problem?

Which video port are you using to connect the monitor?

Are you using adapters or converters to connect the monitor?

Is this a new computer?

Was it working fine before?

When did the issue start?

Did you make any recent hardware/software changes?

Which specific Windows* version are you using?

Does the problem happen at home or in the work environment?

Please attach the SSU and Intel® Graphics report so we can verify further details about the components in your platform, check all the options in the report including the one that says "3rd party software logs":

Carolinemhms, Thank you very much for providing that information.


Ok, in order to provide the Intel® graphics report, please visit the link below, in there, look for the option that says "Intel® Graphics Command Center", select it and then follow the instructions steps by step that you see on the page:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005848/graphics.html


Now, to provide the SSU report, please use the following link, select the "download" option in there and the run the file, follow the steps in the application until you get the option that says "Save". Save the file to your computer, it looks like a "Notepad" file, and then attach it to the thread.


To attach the files to the forum, once you select "Reply", look for the option "Drag and drop here or browse files to attach", click on "Browse" and choose the files that you saved on your computer.


Just to let you know, if the problem about the screen being shrunk happens with all the websites, programs and applications, it could be related to a setting or an option in the monitor itself, did you try to get in contact directly with Samsung Support to check the options of the monitor? That will be a good thing to try since some monitors have the option to under or overscan the display:

This is the report - I hope. Specialists need to remember that some members of the public are not very computer literate.
