Question about Dell E773C 17" CRT Monitor

Monitor settings can't be adjusted

I just bought a second hand monitor and can't seem to get the screen dimensions right. everytime I adjust the pincushion or other settings, it does not seem to correct the problem. My screen saver looks "ok", but when I go to use hotmail, or anyother site, I can't use the red x to close, or the back button due to the fact they are not even on the screen. If I want to scroll up and down using the arrows on the side of the screen, can't be done either. I have had to "shrink" my screen so that I see everything. When typing a hotmail message, it it slanted to the left very badly.

If you will right click on the screen,select graphics properties, and aspect ratio. You can select full screen(no border. If this is a CRT, then adjust with the buttons on the front of the monitor.Vertical and horizontal.

You may need to check the resolution for your graphics card. Check the display settings in the control panel.

Monitor is in slef adjust mode how can i turn it off


It seems like graphics resoluation setting is changed and is beyond the range your monitor can support, what colour is the power light of monitor? as there is no model of the monitor, I can recommend to connect a bit newer version of monitor and see if the screen is on, if not then it will be graphics card settings.

Right click on the desktop, go to properties. Click on the settings tab, change your resolution settings, try a very high resolution and see if that fixes the problem. Your monitor may have an auto adjust button as well that you can try. If that is not the issue, then you may need to get the mechanical issue repaired.

Need to get screen size to show all . cant see


Things to check: Are your display settings set to "native resolution" of your screen. The native resolution is the actual dimensions (in pixels) of your flat-panel screen.
Looks like the Dell E153FP 15" has a native resolution of 1024x768. In windows, go to your control panel, in display settings, and ensure the resolution is set to 1024x768.
If that does not work, you can try the "auto adjust" feature on the monitor. On many Dell monitors, you can get this by pressing and holding the + button (on the monitor). You'll see the words "auto-adjust" appear on the screen if this works. If that doesn't work, you may be able to find auto adjust by navigating the menues in your monitor's menu, which you can get to by pressing the "menu" button on your monitor (sometimes this looks like a little rectangle icon). If it's an alignment problem, this should fix it right away.
If neither of the above work, it's probably your video card. Make sure your video card drivers are the correct ones for your card and OS, and up to date. You can also mess with display options under Control Panel > Display, under the "settings" tab, and at the bottom click the "Advanced" button, and it will bring up the advanced settings for your videocard.
Good luck!

Just bought Acer X203H. Hooked it up to windows Xp 2003.I make greeting cards with Print Shop 12 The cards or out of shape. They are to long horizonally and to short vertically when I am trying to design...


This is because your screen is widescreen and it is hard to get the dimensions right because when you look at the monitor, the aspect ratio is unusual. You would have to manually adjust your monitor settings (using the buttons on the side of the monitor) to make it look like a normal screen.

Onscreen controls don't respond


You have five buttons at thee right-hand bottom of your screen (just under thee edge). They are (from
left to right) the Main Menu button, the Down button, the Up button, the Input button and the Power
button (under the light).


To adjust your screen press the main menu button. Once the main menu screen is up, toggle
through it using the Up/Down buttons. Once you see what you want to adjust, move over to the
right side of the menu by pressing the Input button. Now use your Up/Down buttons to highlight
what you want to change. Once it is highlighted, press the "Input" button again. Now use the
Up/Down buttons to adjust your settings.


Once you have adjusted the settings, simply press the main menu button to exit.
