I have just reinstalled my Sony Vaio PCG-9L1M with Windows 2000.  However, the display is only very small in the middle of the screen.  Does anyone know how to fix this problem?  

I can't seem to find any drivers or things to change in the control panel.

Thanks,

James

You can use a higher resolution, or if your laptop supports it, stretch to fit the screen.

How can I tell which video driver to get for the computer?  I have tried searching for the Vaio PCG-9L1M - and can't seem to find it.
