I recently fitted an old laptop (Sony Viao VGN-A417S, Windows XP) with a new motherboard.
After turning the laptop on and it booting I noticed the desktop was too big for the screen, meaning I had to scroll to the bottom of the screen to see the taskbar etc.
I had a fiddle with the resolution settings but changing them just made the resolution different, and didn't actually fix having to scroll around the desktop to find an icon or taskbar.
I went into Device Manager and updated the Display Adapter and Monitor with no success. I unstalled them and restarted the laptop but, no success. I manually found the drivers on the Sony website and reinstalled them, but still no success.
The screen size is 1920 x 1200, the desktop is set to this resolution, but the screen is... out of proportion I guess?
ATI Mobility Radeon x600 is the graphics card I presume? If that helps.
All help is greatly appreciated.
