I've got a Toshiba laptop that all of a sudden decided that it wants to have a 1/2" black bar on the right side of the screen. at 640x480 it displays properly, but when you switch it to anything higher it gets an area on the right side where it displays nothing. You still see the whole desktop, its just not filling up the entire screen.

    Failing this, make sure you have all of the latest display drivers from Toshi.

    Crap, my bad. LaptopVideo2Go looked promising, and probably would have worked had I dealt with it enough.

    The pre-SP2 video driver worked fine, however.
