    I do not have the model to hand but the OS is XP with SP2.

    The laptop's display has about an inch stripe of black on the very right hand side of the screen. The display works fine (the display just gets shifted to the left). I cannot put my mouse over the black area, the border of the stripe is treated as the screen boundary.

    Any ideas?

    Meaning the screen is not physically bad, but Windows is just letterboxing (or pillarboxing) it?

    Updated display drivers and running at native resolution?

    Well yeah, the screen/desktop is not really affected, just the right stripe takes some of the screen's width away.

    Look at your monitor, look at 7/8ths across the screen, that us where the desktop ends, to the right of that is a black stripe, but the desktop is just squished into the remainder.

    Not sure of the model, I will find that out, would I get those drivers from the manufacturer? And easily updated? (Just a case of using Device Manager?)

    The safest way is getting drivers from the manufacturer, but they're likely to be months old. They'll work with less effort, but will be lower performance.

    The way you're describing it now could indicate a hardware problem which would mean you're screwed. It's hard to tell without actually seeing a picture.

    I have attached a photo, hope that helps.

    Edit: in the photo on the left there is a browser, then there is the black stripe and then there is the actual laptop screen outer rim.

    Okay, so screen not defective because the edge of the window is at the edge of the black bar.

    I suspect video drivers again.
