    Netbook display overfills screen


    System Spec

    Computer type:LaptopSystem Manufacturer/Model Number:Acer Aspire One D257OS:Windows 10CPU:Intel Atom N570 / 1.66 GHzMemory:1GBGraphics Card(s):Intel GMA 3150

    I HAVE ATTACHED PICTURE TO LET YOU VISUALIZE MY PROBLEM. THE RED LINE SYMBOLIZES WHERE THE BOTTOM OF MY DISPLAY IS WHEN VIEWING MY SCREEN. CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE OUT WHY I CAN'T SEE THE BOTTOM PORTION OF THE DISPLAY. I'VE RESET THE GRAPHICS DRIVER, CHANGED RESOLUTION, REPLACED THE SCREEN. CONSULTED 4 REPAIR TECHS AND NOW REACHING OUT TO THE FORUM. HELP! EVERYTHING ABOVE THE RED LINE FILLS MY DISPLAY.

    SCREEN IS A 1024X600 RESOLUTION ON A WIDESCREEN VGA SCREEN

    IT WAS LIKE THIS BEFORE SWITCHING TO WINDOWS 10.

    Could you post a screenshot like that please?

    (I have one of those netbooks, but I'd not dare to update it to Win 10 with 1Gb RAM even though it's within MS specs)

    as you can see, screen shot looks normal. however from my point of view looking at the screen, I'm missing the bottom portion. the display is stretched too far downward.
    resolution is where it's supposed to be

    What if you hide the taskbar. In the taskbar properties - Autohide.

    Looking at your taskbar, you have a different Start button.
    Are you using Classic Shell or some other 3rd party start menu program ?
    If yes, would you mind uninstall it and see if the default Start button and taskbar makes a difference ?

    Just speculating on my part.

    The first picture I uploaded with the red line is Windows 7 from my office computer. I just did that to give an example of my problem. The one I just posted a few minutes ago with display settings is my screen.

    It is in auto hide. I have to keep taskbar on top or sides to use it.

    Well done for posting the screenshot. If you look at the right hand side, you'll see 'Your resolution is lower...' and a warning. I'd suggest you need to resolve that.

    1024x768 is an available option. That should let Windows display normally.
