Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I turned on my computer two days ago and the screen was so skewed on the horizontal that I was unable to view the clock on the tool bar and the start program button at the same time. I have tried to adjust this by using the horizontal and vertical buttons. Moving the screen with the vertical button is not a problem, it works. Unfortunately nothing seems to happen when I use the horizontal button. The picture remains the same. I am wondering if the monotor is on its last legs?

Most likely the refresh rate in your display settings is set to high
lust right click on an empty spot on your desktop and click "properties" from the drop down menu or go to control panel / display and once you are in the display settings window click the "settings" tab on top then click "advanced" then "monitor" and make sure it is set to "60hz" (some monitors go higher but 60 is safe for just about all of them then click apply and see if the problem goes away

If it is already set to "60hz" then there might be a problem with your monitor itself
or it could be a monitor setting like "trapezoid" setting but not many monitors have this setting and it would be rare for it to get accidentally changed but just in case you could always try to go into the monitor settings menu and look for "reset" or "restore" function and if your able to reset it and it still has the same problem then it is probably your monitor is giving out and time to replace it

NOTE: the above solution is based on the assumption that you are using Windows XP with a CRT type monitor (not flat panel or LCD)

Make sure that your software, that you view your pictures with, falls into the 'box format' of 640x480, 1024x768, 1280x1024, etc. Background pictures are typically streched to fit the wider screens. You can change that by right clicking on your desktop.. in XP it is the 2nd tab, on the right side, you can choose stretch or ? Some will give you black bars but no skewing. Then you can adjust your monitor's resolution downward to enlarge your pictures, or leave it at a higher resolution if you don't mind the borders. -DellTech1

The screen is stretched there is nothing distorted


What kind of monitor? They can all be adjusted for width and height by using the buttons along the bottom of the screen. Often it can be confusing and a bit of a pain but look under the monitor menu for 2 sets of icons that look like 2 boxes on top of each other both horizontal and vertical. That is how you adjust it.

Your whole problem my freind is dryed up capacitors. You should go, if you have the technical ability to replace these capacitors, to http://servicemanuals.net, download the schematic diagram, and start replacing the waveshaper capacitors in the vertical drive circuit.
