large black border around display following install of 11.1

i am using 11.1 (64bit) for the first time. no problems during installation (default settings chosen) but after installation my screen has a large black border. i have checked screen settings under 11.1 and they are correctly set to 1024x768. can anyone help. many thanks

if you have an NVidia or ATI/AMD video chip, I recommend you install the proprietary driver for it. That usually fixes this issue. Just enable the respective repository in Yast.
