I have a 20 inch monitor that the screen is off center.The picture is blank 2 inches on the right and part of the left is missing.


I am guess your have a CRT monitor. There should be a menu button or knob on the monitor. Press it and a menu should come up that will allow you to adjust the position and size of the screen display.

If you have an LCD monitor, the resolution of your desktop is smaller than the screens native resolution. There sould be a button marked "auto" press it and it should correct it. If not, find the desktop screen resolution section in your operating system (control panel) and make sure it is set correctly. If it is wide screen, set it to 16:9 and then set it to whatever has the word "Native resolution" written beside it.

I just installed win7 and all mi icons are big, everything is big, please help me.


Right click on the desktop and go to personalize. Down in the bottom left corner click Display. Choose smaller 100%. If this is already checked, Right click on the desktop and click screen resolution. Pick a higher resolution and click apply. The higher the number the smaller everything will get, For Example. 1280x 720 is much smaller than 800 x 600

Need windows 7 drivers for 445xii plus


I doubt a Windows 7 driver is available your old CRT monitor. Rarely do you need a monitor driver for any monitor except to ensure that your PC knows the various resolutions ("desktop sizes") the monitor can support. Do you have a manual for the monitor? If so, look up the highest resolution it can use, e.g., 1024x768, and set your graphics resolution to that. If you need help doing that let me know. Also, of course, feel welcome to say why you need drivers.

Not optimum mode


This means that your resolution (the amount of pixels) is not the same as your monitor's recommended setting.

The easiest way to fix this is to go into your display settings (right click your desktop and, if XP: Properties->Settings or if Vista/7: Screen Resolution) and drag the slider all the way to the right (XP) or top (Vista/7).

If the highest setting makes your screen go blank for more than 5 seconds, press Esc and try the next setting down. Do this until your monitor correctly displays the highest setting allowed.

I just bought a 28 inch viewsonic screen and the only resolution it lets me see my entire desktop is 1088x612. Otherwise it cuts off all four sides and I can't see the start menu... please help!


You didn't list the graphics card you are using, but from your description of the problem, the monitor has a higher resolution than the graphics card can support (usually 1440 x 900, some are higher resolution)

Generally, the solution if to upgrade the graphics card, if the graphics in your system isn't easily upgradable, then you may need to upgrade to a system with adequate graphics

Resolution


it is definatley something to do with the graphics card. Or just the settings you have set it to. Have you tried pressing the auto set button on the monitor itself to see what happens? other to that if you can set the display settings to 1680 by 1050 and display it to highest 32bit. If it doesn't let you do this then you definatley have graphics card issues.

New Monitor in my computer using a xp profesional


Restart your system and keep tapping the F8 Key as soon as you start the system. you should be at an advanced OS options menu, select SafeMode with VGA and proceed to logon to windows. Once in windows, right click on your desktop > properties > Settings > reduce settings to 800x600 > click OK > restart system. Now the display should be back on the monitor. Now read the manual to understand the highest supported resolution for this monitor + set the same as mentioned before on your system.

Monitor problem


Melanie, The computers video cards resolution and / or refresh rate is set incorrectly for your monitor. The easiest way to fix this is as follows for Windows 2000 or XP: -While the computer is first starting press the F8 key every second till the Advanced Options Menu appears. -Using the up or down arrow key select the ?Enable VGA Mode? and hit the enter key. -You will be taken to another screen that may or may not have several items to select from. Find your operating system, highlight it and hit the enter key. -Your computer should now load Windows using a generic display mode. Don?t be alarmed if the objects on the screen appear large, this is just temporary. -Log into Windows (if necessary) and you should now see your desktop. -Ignore the popup in the lower right hand part of your screen saying that the display is set very low. Simply right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears. -From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab. -In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) make sure it is set to 1280 x 1024. This is the typical resolution for a 17? LCD but be aware that your monitor will probably be capable of supporting other resolutions. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -The typical LCD is set to 60 Hertz; however, I have seen where some Acer monitors like 70 Hertz. I would start with 60 for now and change it to 70 if this doesn?t work. -click the OK button twice. -Restart your computer normally and see if it works. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
