after new xp install, notebook video display does not fill the 14.1" screen

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I had to reinstall Windows XP on an old Micron Trek II AGP 377.  It went ok except that the video display does not fill the 14.1" screen.  The monitor it picked was just default monitor and I have no idea how to get it to recognize this LCD notebook monitor or what else to try  to get the screen display correct.  Thanks for your help.
