User is using Windows 7 enterprise, 64 bit.  HP 840 g1 laptop.  
When the laptop is booted at home, the screen resolution is bigger than the screen, i.e. the start button and taskbar only fit half way.

Any suggestions to fix this?  \

    Accepted Solution

    Try pressing Windows key+P. Or press the key kombination to switch between internal/external screen (Fn+F4).

    Also try open the BIOS and disable the hybrid graphic option.

    You could also try to download and install the latest graphics driver for your PC.
