Just to recap.
I used some crapware cleaners and after restarting, the desktop was box shape with parts on the sides of the desktop not used and blacked out. I
didn’t know which cleaner it was as I had used several of them.
I run win 7 home edition on an ATS Z68 Pro3-M motherboard with Intel (R) HD Graphics card.
This is what I did to try to fix the problem.
updated the VGA driver - no good
changed the resolution – no good
changed the TV display settings using Media Centre - no good, changes would not stick
Reinstalled the most recent image - no good
did a repair install - no good
did a clean install - no good
used another computer – no good
turned the TV off, waited 30 seconds and turned on again - no good
To fix this problem, this is what I did.
I opened up the Intel Graphics Control Panel and in there, there is an option to use ‘widescreen’ mode. I ticked this but it still would not go.
By playing around with the settings I managed to reset the settings to the current set up with the 'widescreen mode' now as the default mode and
funtastica !!!, ITS FIXED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The purpose of this thread is tell others about this fix so it will help others in the future. Thanks to those who offered help in my previous two
threads on this problem.
