Re: Picture doesnt fit whole screen

There should be a right and left alighnment on the OSD menu or an auto button to centre the desktop. Also check your screen resolution as 1280x1024 or 1024x768 should be fine.

My new LG Flatron E2350 does not fill the 23 inch screen only 22 inches with a black border, have updated graphics and monitor card to the latest. What do I need to do for the graphics to fill the 23 inch...

Similar to TV - you need to adjust the "H" - Horizontal and "V" - Vertical. Horizontal will move picture up or down and Vertical will adjust left to right.

Use the menu button on your monitor.

Polaroid monitor picture is shifted to left about an inch

Hi you may try
1)to key the auto(adjust) button at TV monitor keyboard if not ok,
2)to change display pixels density from PC display setting because TV monitor could not support the display pixels you using and sync.the picture on well.
3)also you may adjust monitor screen H position(it maybe not convenience for back TV).

Items in picture are not all there

Well, right click on your mouse and select properties. Next click on settings and on your left hands side you will see a screen resolution. Move the bar to your right to your desired settings. Caution: To see the whole pages your types will be much smaller than your previous...settings. Have fun!

Display is off-center

Try the Auto adjust button on the monitor buttons first.
If the entire picture of the computer is showing you can try to shift and stretch the picture through the menu button.
