Your new monitor will show a "native resolution". In the instructions below, try that setting first. If that fails try other settings.

- Right-click on an empty spot on your desktop
- Chose "Properties" on the menu that appears
- Click the "Settings" tab (at the top right)
- Move the "screen resolution" slider to a different number
- Click "apply"
- See how you like it
- Repeat until you get a setting you like.

First right-click anywhere on your desktop to get to the Display Properties. Click on the tabs until you come to the page where you can adjust the resolution by moving the slide all the way to the right. Then on the monitor itself there is a button with an arrow facing to the right and one facing to the left, that is to fix the horizonal and vertical. Play with those two buttons and see if you can get it to fit and still look clear. Those are the only two areas to change the screen. Please do not to forget to rate me on the ratings. thanks in advance.

How do I fit the desktop to the full screen of the monitor?


before you change your screen resolution, you should know first the dimension of your monitor..
this is the common screen resolution for 22 inch LCD monitor: 1600 x 1024 1920 x 1080 up to 3840 x 2400
Note: You can only use this resolution if your video card supports this given screen resolutions. You can set your resolution through configuring the display setup.

Not able to use full screen


Hello,
This sounds like bad resolution is set on your computer. The LG 22" FLATRON monitor has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050. However, your video card may not support this so you can also try any other 16:10 resolution like 1440 x 900.

To change your resolution in Windows XP:
1. Access the Control Panel.
2. Choose "Display".
3. Click the "Settings" tab.
4. Under "Screen resolution" move the slider to a 16:10 resolution like 1680 x 1050 or 1440 x 900.

If you computer does not support higher resolutions, you may consider replacing your video card to take full advantage of your nice 22" Flatron monitor.

If I can further assist you, please let me know.

Regards,
KYTechnology

Hi, you probably have to set the correct resolution that fits on your monitor. The correct resolution is: 1920x1200 You can set it by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing "Screen Resolution" in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you use Windows XP, right-click on your desktop and choose "Properties" Then open the rightmost tab to choose the resolution

click on settings and you will see a computer screen(s) and it will be a place to change the SCREEN RESOLUTION (800x600) (1024x768) etc try a diffrent one from the one you are using and click apply and then OK. run the game, if it persist just try a different size.

My screen is x X y inches. The windows page doesnt fit into it. There is one inch of black space on the monitor on the left and one inch of my windows screen is lost on the right!!!!!!!


With the on-screen controls, select Auto-Adjust. This should set suitable defaults based on the incoming signal. If you are using the VGA connector and the position still needs to be adjusted, use the on-screen controls to shift the displayed image to the proper location (under Display Settings -> Horizontal Position).
