Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop

Picture distortion on desktop monitor

On my monitor close to the top of the screen the picture does not quite meet up, i.e. a split image as if an imaginary horizontal line is running through the screen. This means that if there is a game icon on the top right hand of the screen for example the actual top half of its name is cut off. Bit hard to describe but hopefully someone will understand what I mean and offer some solution. Have tried restarting, changing the background and resetting the PRAM.

Most monitors have a MENU button. Get into that and you can adjust screen positions, etc.

Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Dell inspiron 6000 screen splitting


Hi,
This is a generic problem in most of Dell Laptops ( mostly inspiron ). It is caused due to a fatal fault or breakage in the Hinge Assembly. You need a new Hinge Assembly. Is it splitting more on decreasing the angle of the monitor. If yes, Hinge assembly is the only culprit. If you are under Warrenty then Dell will be liable for it and replace it free. If not under Warrenty, I approx. costs 300$. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Desktop distortion of a Picture


you have to make sure that the picture you want to use as a background has similar resolution to that you are using in your actual display. for example if you are using 800x600 resolution you should have a picture close to that so it doesnt look distorted.

Distorted shrunken picture


hi

reduce the resolution to a bit lower and the refresh rate to a nominal 60hz and things should get back to normal

my hunch is u r using a slightly high resolution and refresh rates

but before that try the buttons on the monitor to see if expanding the image sideways or top and bottom would help initially

cheers
pls rate if this was any help
