How to adjust the monitor settings?

Question

I recently reformatted my laptop and changed the operating system from Windows ME to Windows XP. Now the screen is very small and doesn't fill up the monitor. How do I adjust the screen to make it larger so that it will fill up the entire monitor size? Thanks much!!
