Question about IBM G74 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Objects on screen out of window

I've had an IBM G74 monitor for 10 years. Until recently, it's been working fine. I'll try and explain the problem. My computer is a Compaq 340. About a month ago, I started noticing that there are "bends" on either side of the program window. For example, when I'm in Internet Explorer or Microsoft Word, the left and ride sides of the window have bends...they look like parentheses and the window is distorted. Kinda like this... )( Also, for some reason, my destop with all my icons is being cut off on the sides. I didn't change any settings. I'm not sure if my monitor is just dying or if there is something else that happened. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Chris LaFontaine San Diego, CA

    I have the same problem. Desktop and taskbar spilling off of the side of the screen. I have used the monitor control options to no avail.

    i have this IBM G74 monitor, which had been repaired after it's screen went all blank (no display).

    after the repair, the problem is that its like watching a wide screen picture on a smaller screen, that is,

    either the left end (with icons) is missing (only the right end of the screen is visible) or, after screen adjustment only left end of screen is visible. But both ends of the screen are impossible to see at the same time.

    please explain the best way to deal with the situation.

CRT monitors suffer from the so-called pincushion effect. It is the curving of the actual video picture usually inwards on the sides. There is often an adjustment to compensate for this and it's usually situated near the other user controls. Look for it in you manual.

Now, because of magnetism differences in the world. The monitor is setup to work where it was built. The pincushion effect get worse over time. The degree of severity depends on the location of the monitor and the quality of the design of it to facilitate enough future re-adjustment by turning the pincushion knob.

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

The display screen has turned black


When you connected the external monitor thto the laptop did it display?

If so then you have to reset the monitor port. Hold down the function key and find the FKEY that shows a picture of a monitor. Press that until you get the laptop screen back.

Typical use is:
  • 1 press = external monitor
  • 2 presses = laptop and dual monitor
  • 3 presses = just the laptop screen

ferozkhan, It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. With the computer on and the monitor power LED green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. Depending on the monitor this is usually an economically repairable problem. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
