Cannot fit to screen size

You probably need to install a display driver for this monitor on your netbook.

Monitor screen display stretched center but squashed/narrow edges

On the monitor itself, I am guessing this is a desktop? There are buttons for adjustment. Look for the menu button around the bezel of the monitor and press it. Scroll through the settings for the default setting and press that. Once the default settings are made for the monitor, then you can go to the graphics settings available through windows to get the resolution straightened out.

How do you open up the monitor to access the on/off button that has slipped into the monitor

Some of them the front comes off, some the back. If its an front one then look at bottom of unit for 4 screws, then after they are out there are clips all the way around the front of screen where the line is of the back/front meets. hopes this helps

How can i open an hp w2207 monitor

I just got my son's hp w2207 apart. You need to gently pull off the front black frame around the LCD first. Work the black frame away from the silver edging around the entire screen. Then unscrew the four, black screws on the back.

Power button damange ,

I used two thin putty knives this morning to open the monitor case. First, unscrew the four screws at the back. Then insert a putty knife into the small crack between the front bezel and the monitor shell. Carefully work you way around and wiggle the putty knives. Note that the front buttons are attached to the thin black edge at the front, and there's a thin cable at the bottom. Don't damage that. You can take off the back shell though.

Black at left and right of monitor

Since this is a CRT monitor, it doesn't have a native resolution like LCD monitors. You need to adjust the veritcal and horizontal sizes to fit the monitor. On the front of the monitor there are some menu buttons. You need to open the on-screen menu, then navigate to the Horizontal Size and Position menu, use the plus and minus buttons to grow and shrink the image. If it's not centered, use the Horizontal Position menu to move it around. Use this same system for the Vertical menu and you can get your image to fit your screen. By the way, you should have your operating system running with a white (or light colored screen) up when you do this so you can see all the edges of your desktop. The buttons are tricky, but they kinda make sense. Good Luck!

Hannspree HF229H monitor and Windows XP. Images stretch to fit.

I had this same issue.

Go into the monitors menu, go down to "Image Settings", go to "HDMI Mode", select "PC Mode"

Hope this fixes it for you. It worked for me.

How to use buttons on front of Monitor for vertical Horizontal settings

Oldie, The first thing to do is set the monitor resolution, color depth and monitor refresh rate to what you want then adjust the monitor accordingly. Adjust resolution, color depth and refresh rate for Windows 2000/XP: -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) experiment with the resolutions and see what you like. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most colors) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -Typically you would want to set it at 70 Hertz or better. The higher the setting the less flicker you will notice, however, there is always a trade off. I would start with 70 Hertz and gradually move up; at some point your monitor will reach a setting it can?t support. If the screen blanks out Windows will reset back to the previous settings as long as you don?t hit any keys. -click the OK button twice. More to follow?.

Is there an easy way to open this monitor?

-Flip the LCD face down and remove the screws that hold the base in place. -looking at the top edge of the LCD monitor you should see a small notch on each end between the front bezel and the back cover. -Using a plastic tool or a flat blade screw driver insert the tip and gently pop the case open. -Work your way around the edge of the case. -Once the LCD monitor is open unplug the control panel connector from the right side and remove the front bezel.
