IBM T60 Screen resolution

Posted on 2006-10-19
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
When i change the resolution from the native 1400 by 1050, It is not displayed on the full screen. For example if i try to change to an 800 by 600 resolution, only the very center of the screen will have a picture and there would be a large black "border" on the edges. How can i fix this?

There should be a "stretch to fit screen" setting in the video settings.  Right-click on the desktop and choose properties->settings.

Look for a screen expansion option in the BIOS, then.

It could be a BIOS option, check there.

Also, if it's an Nvidia chipset there is an option to "Change Flat Panel Scaling" in the Display category of the Nvidia control panel.

I figured out that there was an option in the catalyst control panel for "flat panel scaling". Thanks for the help
