Question about LaCie Electron 22" CRT Monitor
My Lacie Electron 22 Blue monitor recently got a kwerk that I can't figure out. It's an interesting problem, and it might be tough for me to explain, but bare with me. The display is "zoomed in" in a sense and I've lost portions of the desktop on the top, bottom, and sides. However, when I move my cursor closer to the sides, the desktop literally shifts so I can operate on that portion of the desktop. It's extremely bizarre and I've attempted to fix it thorugh OSX, but I've deermined that it's a problem with the monitor and not the settings of OSX. Like I said, it's as if it's zommed in and I can only operate on portions of the desktop that are cropped off if I move my cursor to that region. It's very annoying and I'm getting ready to throw the damn thing out the window. it's alomost rendered the monitor useless.
I've worked out the solution for this problem for users of Mac OS X: go to System Preferences > Universal Access, and turn off the Zoom feature. Problem solved.

I'm having precisely the same problem with my Neovo 17" monitor. The solution suggested above relates to a Windows system - mine is a Mac OS X. There is no separate setting for Screen Resolution as opposed to Desktop, so something else needs to be done. I had this problem before, but it went away and I can't remember how, although I thought it had something to do with deleting the display preferences. More suggestions welcome.

This problem sounds like it has to do with your video adapter settings rather than the monitor itself. What way have happened is that your screen resolution size decreased (explaining the zoomed in), while the desktop size remained the same (explaing the ability to slide all over the place.). All video adapters are different, but try the following. Right click on your desktop and select properties. Go to the Settings tab. Do you have 2 slide bars there? Possibly one for Screen Resolution and another for Desktop size? If so, are they set to different values? Go resolve the issue, set both sliding bars to the same values, for example 1024 by 768 pixels. Adjust these setting to get back to the settings you had before, making sure that both values are the same.
