Re: change display resolution? 800x600-->1024x768

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like your computer IS displaying
in 1024x768.  Your monitor is not properly stretching the screen to
fill the display.

Sometimes when you first setup a system, or alter the video settings,
you have to fiddle with the monitor's knobs/buttons to stretch and
move the display horizontally and/or vertically to make it fit the
screen properly.  Every monitor is a little different.  But by pushing
a button or twisting a knob you should see an OSD (On Screen Display)
that gives you options for stretching/moving the screen horizontally
and vertically.

Some LCDs have a button you can push that will automatically adjust
the display to fit the screen.

Hope this helps,
