If you Dell laptop computer screen isn't displaying a full-screen image after you adjust its overall resolution, this means that you've changed to a resolution that your monitor doesn't support. You've either picked a resolution that is too large or too small for your laptop's built-in screen to handle. You can correct this by switching it back to its recommended resolution, using native Windows tools.
