right click on your desktop > screen resolution. or from control panel > display

You should have the option to change the resolution for your second screen.

If not, you'll need to open up your video card driver utility Ex. ATI / NVidia control panel and change the settings from there.

From the Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound.

This will open a window where you can adjust your screen size (resolution).

Is it a VGA connection from the CPU to the monitor?  If so, most modern monitors have an auto-adjust feature that will help configure and center the picture.

The number refers to one of your two monitors.  The first number refers to the monitor with #1 and when you adjust its settings it applies to #1 only.  Then you click #2 and you can adjust its settings as well.

Click the drop down for Display.
