How to reset monitor display image on laptop.

Laptop display shows on only half of the screen. How do I reset it back to show full screen. There are Fn keys to toggle image but can't figure how or what key sequences to show full screen. Laptop is Lenovo R61

Perhaps try changing the screen resolution? I assume you're using windows?

Yes, as suggested, try a resolution that is consistent with the max resolution of the screen, or, try "stretching" the image (usually a Fn + F? key combination).

I tried setting the resolution in display properties, also I even tried modify  the desktop picture and screen saver settings. Still a portion of the screen on the right border is black. Normaly PCs have buttons to adjust the vertical/horizontal image. Cannot reset it on the laptop, like it was before. Dont know how it got that way.

Do you mean to say that a portion of the image is missing (black part of screen), or is the image compressed to make an empty (black) portion on the screen? If the first is true, you have a hardware problem, possibly the cable to the screen needs to be re-seated or exchanged.

How do you mean you tried to set the resolution; couldn't you adjust the settings or could you and the black part remained?

The desktop image is shifted over to the left, with a black bar on the right. I tried to reset resolution from Start->control panel->display->settings->"

I believe it was mistakenly set with a series of key strokes.

First try Fn+F8
If that doesn't do it look in the Thinkpad Configuration utility for display settings
