Only on my profile (administrator) I am missing the use of 1/4 of my screen.
See attached screen shots.

A window opened at its maximized setting doesn't open to cover the left side of the screen. Also, desktop icons "disappear" on that side. Kind of reminds me of a black hole. If I move an icon fully to the left it vanishes, but returns at some point.

I can go to Full screen view from IE and Mozilla and have use of the entire display, but not with other program windows such as WS Word. I have checked the display settings, I have gone to the windows classic display. Something changed on the display (maybe by a 5 year old playing switch-a-roo with my icons?). Please help.

Thanks, Tatia

Strange problem. Have you tried "Safe Mode" to see if the problem occurs there?
Have you tried uinstalling and reinstalling your video card in device manager?
---------

To uninstall:

Start>
Control Panel>
System>
Hardware Tab>
Device Manager>
Double click Display Adapters
Right click your adapter (ie Nvidia Graphics controller)
Click "uninstall"
Restart your computer


Post back if that doesn't solve the problem.

Thanks for your help. Although I did use your suggestions, I randomly figured out that it was a recently installed AIM program. Uninstalling it did the trick. Thanks for your time.
