I changed my monitor resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768. But the whole size of windon screen shrinked and even I maximize windon screen, there still is half-inch thick black border around it. How can I get rid of this black border so the maximized window can ocuppy whole monitor? btw, I am using Windows 2000.
Thanks

Siyu,

You can also try increasing the refresh rate of the monitor if you have streched it as far as it goes.

Right Click on Desktop, Properties, Settings, Advance, Monitor, Refresh, if the monitor doesn't support the refresh you try you will get a dodgy looking screen for 25 seconds before it kicks back to how it was.  You may have to drop the Colour Depth to increase the refresh enough to fill the whole screen.

What type of DISPLAY do you have?  It could very well be that it doesn't support 1024x768 at a useful rate and you're getting a rotten image.
