I have re-installed windows but still no changes even when I start up at the bios i get this problem

Right-click a blank area of your desktop and bring up your graphics card settings and adjust resolution to fit the monitor (or do it through Windows Personalisation from the right-click or in Control Panel)....the instructions for the monitor must state what the default resolution is.

display/monitor 1024×768 display size
the display/monitor uses the generic driver for display and it is 1024×768 or 800x600 but it looks very odd it should be bigger because my screen is bigger. I have a acer monitor but is there something I can download to fix the display size?
