resolution

When switching screen resolution to 800x600(using a Phillips Magnavox 15" VGA) with Windows95, I can't get the screen centered. There's a 3/4" black margin on the left side of the screen. I have the S3 chipset with the latest drivers.
Any & all help is greatly appreciated. Please reply to:

You need to use the video driver with the correct supported scan frequency of the monitor for that resolution e.g. Your monitor may support a scan frequency of 75HZ for 800x600 256 colors but 60HZ for 800x600 64k colors. You should be able to change this either in:
control panel-display-settings-'change display type'
or:
using a program found in the video card driver directory (if you have one)

Failing this check that you are using the correct video driver for the card (again in control panel) and that you are not trying to run at too high a colour depth e.g. 800x600 256 colors is generally the fastest video mode.

I hope this helps.
