Windows 7: Some pages larger than monitor.

Some pages larger than monitor.

Since doing a "clean install" of W7 I find that some pages are larger than the monitor. American Greetings.com......"Create and Print" in particular, no scroll bars, yet there is more to see. Also the background of the "desktop" appears larger than I am used to. Background is a slide show.

Screen Resolution is set to the maximum (1366x768)(recommended).

you need to reinstall the video drivers for your laptop

go to the Asus website and find your laptop, download the drivers from there!

You should find the drivers here! try them anyway!

Did that and have the zip file. When I click on EXTRACT am told to extract to a selected folder. I assume that it means Windows.....System32.......Drivers (not Driver Store). Am I correct?

No, it just means extract to a convenient folder from where you can click on Install.exe or Setup.exe to begin the driver installation. The installation program itself will place the necessary file(s) in the requisite location(s) and also update any registry settings required.

For example, I have just downloaded the 32-bit VGA driver from the link given by Graemzy above. This is a .zip folder containing compressed files which need to be expanded before use. I just right-clicked on the folder and clicked Extract All... I accepted the default settings, which is to create a folder of the same name as the original folder (but without the .zip extension). Clicking this new folder to reveal its contents reveals that the file you need to initiate driver installation is Setup.exe. Obviously, if your system is 64-bit, you would download the 64-bit driver and follow the above instructions. You might need to use an administrative account (one with administrative privileges) for installing the driver.

yes, as dwarf said above, just extract them to say the desktop, that is good enough, then just double click them and they will install!

Thanks guys. Did just that and it made no difference to the original problem. Apparently not a driver problem. So went back to the original drivers which were newer.
