Myst lll - How do I make the screen view larger?

I just installed Myst lll on my laptop.  When I play the game through an exterior monitor, the game fills the screen.  When I play using my laptop monitor, the game view only fills about 1/2 the screen.  I played with the display properties appearance settings, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.  My laptop is a Thinkpad T21, and I am still running Windows 95.

Check the resolution settings on the monitor and on the laptop.  It sounds like the res. settings on your laptop are higher than on the monitor.  MystIII uses movies that are a set res., so therefore for the game to fill the screen it must be set to that resolution.  Try going to the game options and changing the res settings, and also the display settings on your computer.  If you don't understand anything I just said, go ahead and ask away!
