I think Kony is saying, he doesn't follow what you are saying.
When I look up the R6137, it has a resolution of 1280x800. Sort
of a wide screen, a 16:10 ratio. It could be that your old
notebook had a different ratio, like 5:4 or 4:3. A "piece of paper"
viewed on the screen, will fit a wide screen and a non-wide screen
a bit different. Is that what you are seeing ? The wide screen will
leave room to the sides of the sheet of paper, room that can be
used for tool pallets and the like.
It sounds like your previous notebook had a magnification function,
which allowed the desktop to be panned. As you moved the mouse on
the old notebook, would you "move around" a larger frame ? That is
panning. I've read at least one person's experience with a desktop
SIS chipset, where it went into panning mode, whenever you asked
for a desktop larger than a certain resolution.
This is panning. The larger outside border is the whole desktop.
The smaller window is the part you see on the screen. When the mouse
"bumps" against the edges of the smaller window, the window into
the virtual desktop moves. That is the panning action. The ratio
between the Virtual Desktop size and the Visual size, is the
magnification ratio the user has selected.

If the Compaq is using a different chipset, it could be that the
video driver doesn't support the panning function.
The built-in graphics on your new notebook are GMA950. I haven't
been able to find any info on supported resolutions. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...reg_R1002_USEN
