Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor

1 Answer

Icons are "off screen" on right side

My desktop is getting full, but when I download camera pictures, some disappear off to the right side of the screen where I can't see or find them.
Sometimes I can drag my mouse off screen and pull them back, other times I have to "rearrange" desktop command to get them. Regular programs fill out screen completely, but don't over flow off to the right side.
I have an ATI video card with the following setting:
Saphire Radeon X1550-version 8.11
2D driver 6.14.10.6879

Download your pictures to the my pictures folder instead of the desktop....clean off any icons on your desktop that you don't use...this will also help speed up your pc a little...even if you change screen res so you can see the picture Icons you'll keep getting the same problem in future

If it only disappears when you move it left or right off the edge of the screen, your video software may think you have a second monitor. Tell it different.

Sounds like a hardware failure inside your monitor.
If it's still under warranty I would suggest you return your monitor for a new one. If it's not, then I would recommend looking for a local repair shop to repair it or try to purchase a new or used monitor to replace it.

Hi Jessica.

You have you graphics card resolution set too high. I assume you are using some version of Windows. If so, right click the desktop and left click properties (Windows XP), click the advanced tab and reduce the slider to 1024 x 768 and apply the settings. If using Vista or Windows-7, right click desktop and left click screen resolution and select the above setting. This shoud correct the panning issue and give you your entire screen back. Hope this helps and good luck.

I have a FPD 1830 flat screen monitor not displaying picture


Send the monitor. It's a power supply problem. My 15.4" LCD has the problem, too, whenever I move the monitor down, it powers off, and the menu disappears as well, but I'm going to fix the screen.
