He is correct, But you can make the adjustment yourself. Go to the Windows front end screen and RIGHT click, select Properties then the Settings tab. Check that the monitor displayed is the one you are using and then use the controls offered to make adjustments. Be ready to click the cancel button offered in case the screen becomes unreadable. The system will allow you about 30 seconds to confirm any changes you make. If you do not confirm then the screen will revert to the state it was in before you made the changes. This is to ensure that if you are not able to read the screen then it will be put back as it was originally.

How to put embeded videos on websites


An "embedded" video means it is part of a Web page display rather than just a hyperlink that visitors click on to load the media in another window.

This is an ideal setup if you don't want viewers to leave your website to benefit from the video.
By using a few lines of HyperText Markup Language (HTML), you can embed a video from a sharing site like You Tube or insert your own file onto your website.

Click on the desired video image and copy the code found in the "Embed" section.
(If you do not see an "Embed" area, it means that the video maker does not want the file to be redistributed. You'll need to find another video).

Launch the HTML text editor and open the website page(s) where you want to embed the video. Navigate to your code window, position your cursor in the area where you want to add the movie and paste in the code.

Preview the page to make sure the video displays correctly.
Save the file.

Place the file on your Web host.

Embed Your Own Video

Place your video file, such as Windows Media Video (WMV), on your Web host in the same directory that houses your website files.

Make a note of the location so you can properly insert it on your page.
Launch the HTML text editor, open the desired website page and position your cursor in the code window where you want the video to display.

Enter the HTML "<embed>" code and specify a "type" that identifies what kind of video you have and a "src" that names the address of the file from step one. For example, the code to enter a Flash movie would look like this: < embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.yourdomain.com/video.swf" />

Preview the page to make sure the video displays correctly and then save your document.

Add the document to your Web host.
Embed a Video With HTML on My Website

Embedding video into your website with HTML allows your viewers, readers, or customers to watch a video without downloading it first.

A user could simultaneously read your copy while listening to or watching the embedded video. You can embed a video with HTML using Notepad or your preferred web editor.

Click "Start" and type "notepad" and then press "Enter."
Click "File," and then "Open."

Click the "File Type" drop-down menu and select "All Files and Folders" from the list of options. Locate your HTML file you want to embed the video into, select it and click "Open."


Scroll to the point where you want to embed the video.
Type the following in to the empty space:

<embed src="http://url.com/yourvideo.mpg" autostart="false" />
Replace "url.com" with the address of your video and "yourvideo.mpg" with the file name and extension of your video that you want to embed.

Change "false" to "true" if you want the video to automatically begin.
Close Notepad, and click "Save" when prompted. Upload the HTML page and you will have embedded video into the HTML of the site.

Re: widescreen monitor


Assuming the PC has a slot for which you can still get a suitable graphics card, the card will cost very little. The advantage of the widescreen is that, for example, you can get a web browser window and a text editor window side-by-side so you can work on the text and see what you're writing about/responding to simultaneously. Alternatively, you can see two A4 pages side-by-side which is sometimes useful. You can also see a full page of text and have all the tool palettes you need by its side. One last advantage: If your new monitor has a DVI socket and you get a video card which has DVI output, you should get a better quality picture which will be easier on your eyes.
