You didn't show what you  have so far but you can do one of two things:

1, use stylesheet with fixed positioning:

<style type="text/css">

Open in new window

   <div id="entireScreen">
rest of html code

Open in new window


Use JavaScript:
<script type="text/JavaScript">

        function FillScreen()
            document.getElementById(entireScreen).style.Width= window.innerWidth +'px';
        window.onresize = FillScreen;

Open in new window

Something like these two, I think will do it
