In Display properties does it tell you the size it thinks the screen is (15 or 17)?

If you go into device manager do you have any warnings?

Display drivers installed I assume.

Some older monitors you need to access the menu on the monitor itself and resize the screen there. You can adjust height, width, stretch etc.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
