So recently I updated my video drivers and now my desktop is too big to fit on my monitor. I have to place my cursor on the top and bottom to scroll up and down. I have already checked my monitor settings and nothing there will help this. Any ideas on fixing this problem is greatly appreciated.

Disable virtual desktop if its enabled. Tell me if that works. ATI has a problem with drivers and virtual desktop if you are using ATI card

Does your monitor have an "Auto" button? Sometimes it's a separate button, sometimes it's in the menus you access from the buttons. This will usually adjust the monitor to fit correctly.

When you mention monitor settings are you speaking about the resolution settings in properties? If not go to the desktop, right-click and choose Properties. On the Settings tab adjust the Screen Resolution.

I was out of town for a bit and just now tried a few things. The Screen Resolution tab fixed everything. Things for the tips guys.
