try a different resoultion ...also monitor should be set for either plug and play or laptop display...possibly 800x600. What ever resolution works laptop monitor should match.

Make sure you have the correct video drivers and change the resolution to 800x600.  If it still doesn't fill the screen, change it to 1024x768.  And sgenther is right, make sure the laptop monitor is set to the appropriate "laptop <resolution>"

IBM's do the same thing. If you set the resolution to 640x480, then your LCD will not show on the full screen. There are 2 ways to fix it, and yes, the correct video driver IS important.

1). Change the display higher, to 800x600 or 1024x768

2). You either will be able to do this straight in the BIOS, or there will be a program in Windows that ACER has installed, that adjusts settings in the BIOS. Either way, there will be an option to have the screen stretch to the full LCD screen, if you like the resolution that you have.

Let me know if this works

You need the correct video driver and screen resolution. Some laptops only look correct at the resolution they were meant to display. A Panasonic CF-62 w/ the 1024X768 screen only takes up the full screen at 1024 while in 800 or 640 modes the screen is a small rectangle in the middle of the display.
