Image is not positioned properly on the wide flat screen
I connect a Dell SP2208WFP Flat Panel Monitor to a Dell Inspiron 1420 note book computer. The image on the wide flat screen is clear but it is positioned to the right and the right margin of the image is cut off. Could you please show me how to position the image properly on the wide screen (ie, how to move it to the center)?

Re: image is not positioned properly on the wide flat...
Hi... generally the image adjustment and positioning controls will be located on the monitor itself.But iam not sure about this model because i dont have one.You can try the user manualfor further adjustments. Also try changing the refresh rates..i.e keep them the highest possible.
Also if your notebook uses inbuilt nvidia graphics, then you will be presented with a system tray applet something like "nvidia display control"...
You can change the positioning from there as it will have a interactive GUI.[graphical user interface].

Eight beeps means a display failure.
Since the external monitor works, you know it's not a fault with the video card.
With the notebook off, hold down the "D" key and power the notebook on. If you get solid colors on the screen, then you know the LCD is good. I would look for a problem with the video cable.
Pinpointed spots can be damaged pixels that no longer light up when energized. They cannot be repaired and you will have to live with them, or get a new display. Try to use the Color Adapter port to a standard LCD Screen. On the side of the computer is a small 9 pin (usually blue) port whereby you can attach a desktop monitor as an alternative to the LCD Panel on the laptop.
yes I promise that you must take apart this laptop again to connect the wire that lights up the back light to the screen, you will notice it because It is a bit wide, it attaches to the motherboard find the proper spot for the hook up and away you go...hope that helps. or the issue is that you need to hold down th FN kep and press near the top end of laptops keys a key that looks like either an X or monitor icon, hold down FN and find that other key "X" or "TV icon looking key". and press it and release them once,. these buttons are for switching between desktops or spawning them off to two or even three TV sets, or monitors. if that is not it I hate to say the first option was the proper one, I hope this helps.
The card may not be set into the slot properly. Make certain the computer is OFF when you check the interior of the computer case. Crossing the tangs (small flat pins on the board) can damage the controller, so be careful when inserting or pulling it out. Press down firmly on the top of the card and seat the card so it won't move side to side. Reattach your Computer Monitor cable in the correct position and screw down the attachments to make a positive connection. Check the Monitor and see if the Cable is well attached also. Start up and see if that fixted the problem. If not the Controller is defective.
Bad video card, bad hard drive, bios battery. If you have a screen but only a blinking cursor on it, likely a bad hard disk drive, meaning all your data and files are now gone, also your os is likely inaccessible. If you can heart it boot up like normal through speakers then video card or monitor, more likely the monitor's power supply is bad, find another monitor (size not important, just the display connector) and connect it to your PC with the power off. If it works then it's the monitor that is bad, purchase a new monitor, if another known working monitor doesn't solve the screen issue, it's probably your video card. A new card is cheap and you should be able to install a new one and have basic display until you install the drivers.
