You need to go into Display settings and set the correct resolution for the Monitor.

Not sure what you mean by 'landscape display' though. Do you mean the picture doesn't fill the screen ?

What computer is this ? If it's not a big box brand like Dell etc what graphics card is in it ? What Monitor is it, make and model ? What version of Windows ?

Yes the picture does not fill the screena. It appears as a strip across the screen.

Also post the model of monitor. You just need to match the resolution you set in Windows to one that the monitor supports.

Try 1024x768 as that's a very standard 4:3 resolutions, to change the resolution right click on your desktop and choose:
For XP: Click on Properties and then go to the Settings tab, you'll have a resolution slider there to adjust the resolution.
For Vista/7/8: Click on Screen Resolution and change the resolution there.
