Question about Mag Innovision LT776s 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Only 3/4 of the screen is being shown...

The display has a black bar on the bottom fourth of the entire monitor. Then the screen begins (with the start menu, etc. for windows) and I can't see to the top of the screen. I have to guess to move down the windows to see content in web pages. We turn the monitor off at night and yesterday morning I turned the monitor on & it was like this... I tried using the menu button on the monitor to adjust the width & height & also used the "auto" button but the black bar remains while the picture being shown is adjusted. I also tried completely shutting down the computer and leaving it for a day but no use...the husband says he has no idea what happened to it...

Re: only 3/4 of the screen is being shown...

Ok so I have actually had this happen to me before. My best guess would be that it is a problem with the video card. There may be some video drivers that you need to download. The other explenation might be that the video card over heated.

When it happened to me the whole screen went blank all together after the login screen so at that point it wouldn't load Windows. If you're still covered under the warranty then you're good and set and you could get it within a couple of weeks if you send it to a tech service (preferably the company that built it)

Hope this helped

Black strip left hand side of moniter screen not being filled

The monitor should have some kind of menu, accessible through the buttons on the side or bottom. In there you can move te display area to the left. If you then get a bar to the right, you should change the monitor resolution to the highest it can display.
If the bar on the left persists, you should check wether the PC-monitor cable is properly insterted. If so, try another cable. If that doesn't help either, try another monitor.

I hope this helps,

Black Bars each side of my new monitor wide screen

Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.

A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

Here's a screetshot of what the Box with the slider bar looks like:

If you have Windows Vista, (it is similiar to XP):

Click the Start Button and click Control Panel in the Start Menu
Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom
A new box will pop up with the grey button on a slider bar near the bottom left under "Resolution" Slide the button to the right to the next line one spot over on the slider bar and then click the Apply button. The screen may flicker and change the size of your desktop. Click OK if the screen looks correct or click No if it doesn't look correct and try sliding the button over one more line.

1440 x 900 setting for monitor means I can't see my whole desktop on my toshiba laptop...

Not all laptops display adapters will allow the individual settings for a screen and a monitor to take effect correctly.
This happens especially when one is a widescreen and the other is a standard screen.
It seems your settings are taking effect on both screens at once instead of on each screen individually.
I assume you have adjusted te display sizes in your display settings ?
If so, did you adjust each display separately ?
You may also have to see if your display adapter has the most correct drivers. That may help.
