Question
i have a widescreen monitor amd when i turn on the computer it used to fill the whole screen and now when i turn it on it covers only the middle  turning it into a regular square looking monitor i lose 3"on both sides/ is there any way to make it fill the whle screen again

Answer
There are 2 possible reasons for this and you'll need to look for other if the first doesn't works:

Method #1
1. Navigate the menu option located at your monitor, possible at the center of the screen (just below where LCD screen ends or the company logo) or at the back side(at the right lower corner).
2. There is an option for auto image adjust. If it's not there, find the manual adjust option and set your screen resolution from there.

Method #2

1. Once you logged in and at your desktop screen, right  click at the center of the screen. Choose properties > screen resolution.
2. Set your desired screen size (1024*768) that best covers the entire area.

Hope it helps!!
