You're not really clear, can you give us a screenshot?

I took a screen shot and it looks fine but on my left side I have a black strip and on my right side I can't see the scrolling bar or the trash icon

Have you tried first to reset the moniter? It sounds like Baby just played with the settings on your moniter, easy to do. Just play around with them untill it looks normal.

Second, have you rebooted your PC? Sometime, when all else fails, powering down and then powering up does the trick.

Educational stuff? Youtube? I hadn't realised The Theory of relativitity is popular there!

Doesn't fix your problem but
