lcd cropping software? Answered

I just built a DIY projector for my room (basically an overhead with an lcd and fans slapped on). Many people that do this use a 15 inch screen, but my family recently burnt out the backlight of a 17", so I used that. Anyways, since the stage of the overheadprojector can't see the whole LCD, some parts of the image get cut off. Is there some sort of software to essentially shrink a screen so that I can get the whole image viewable to the projector?

My graphics card has software that will do this - see what yours has or what the manufacturer has on their website? L

hmm, my desktop can do that, but not my laptop. And there's 2 floors seperating my projector and my desktop :P

Might you be able to download something for the card in the laptop? If you've got the card there might be a free manufacturer's utility. L
