win95 desktop border

Is there anything I can do to eliminate the 3/4 inch black, unusable border on the sides of my monitor when in windows95.  In DOS, when booting up and when in
1024x768 mode, I can utilize all of my screen.
>I prefer 800x600 mode but can't figure out how to get all
the screen to show image.  Vertical has plenty of range via the monitor adjustment buttons, the problem is only horizantal.  I have a Trident 9680 video card and a ADI 14" monitor.  As far as I can tell everything is working correctly except this annoying border.  Please help!!
                          Thanks   muna@rpa.net

Sounds like your refresh rate is being set wrong for 800X600.  If the optimal refresh rate is not correct this can cause some mis-alignment on the screen.  Such as the border you mention, or the screen being shifted to one side or the other, or being too big where you can't see it all etc.  
If your video card as a refresh rate utility, you might want to play around with the rates to get the best possible one for your settings.
An example is on my system at 800 X 600 my optimal refresh rate for my NEC 17" monitor is 100HZ.  If I switch the rate to say 60Hz then my entire screen shifts to the right.
