Re: Monitor displays vertically

If you mean that your screen display became narrower, then there are usually buttons on the screen to fix this, among other adjustments of the screen. the setting you're looking for has a two way arrow going horizontally through the middle of an icon representing the screen. In case i'm misunderstanding your problem, or this does not help, you can also try to let the screen rest for a while(at least 30 minutes), and turn it back on, to allow it to degauss. Good luck

How can I fix an "Out of Range" display?

It means that your display card settings are too high for your monitor. Boot your system into safe mode (press F9 as it boots up) and set the display settings lower. Right mouse button click on an empty space on your desktop and go to properties. Then settings->advanced->Monitor and you should be able to adjust the vertical frequency down to 60hz or 72hz. If you get the out of range message on boot up then you will need to try out a different screen on your system, boot into Windows, change the settings and then plug in your original monitor.

I want to adjust my screen , its is streching vertically Please help

Look for "buttons" on the bottom-front or bottom-edge of the monitor.

One button will activate the OSD ("On Screen Display). Through the OSD, you can change the "vertical size" and "vertical position" of the display.
