Screen adjust changes when entering/leaving full screen games

Well had my monitor for about a year comming up (should be still under warrenty worse case), and recently the screen gets messed up whenever entering or leaving a full screen game. It moves horizontally to the right everytime i enter/leave a game meaning the whole horzintal position moves, leaving a black edge on the left side and unvisible parts of game/desktop on the right. I can fix by just doing the auto adjust but its annoying to have to do that so many times per day. Is there any fix or reason this is happening? thanks.

When your not playing games does it have this problem? You should update the drivers for the monitor and your video card and even the games for that matter, all of those have updates. Update all of these items and see if the problem still exists. You may try running a virus/spyware/other boogies scan too you never know what ilk they may spread. We'll keep the warranty thing in mind but try the above updates. let me know what happens. Tim

thats really odd that windows 7 doesnt give you full screen but the game does? change your resolution settings around to see if that helps altho i doubt it. check menu settings on your monitor and see if you can change its aspect ratio

When opened, the HP TFT7600 displays "PC entering power saving mode" and the screen goes blank.

disconnect all the cables except the power cable and then turn the monitor on you would see a test screen if it still happens your monitor is faulty and better buy a new one as repairing is usually expensive .
also check you warrenty its usually 3 years

Lines across screen

The screen you have is almost certainly on the way out. This type of fault is in the Horizontal Flyback section of the Monitor. Usually components fault or age and change value, these lines are normally "Turned Off" so ya can't see them, that "Turn Off" circuitry is going faulty.. it will only get worse. I suggest a new, or 2nd hand monitor as they are so cheap these days fixing CRT monitors can be cost prohibitive.
