When clicking the auto adjust button, the screen shrinked.
I have a benq T201WA 20'' monitor and one day i was meant to decrease the brightness when i accidentally pushed the auto adjust button which searches for ideal size and all that. But when it finished my screen was smaller than before. There is a wide black space between the right edge and the screen itself.
I cannot do anything in the monitor settings what will fix this.
Also, the text is a bit warped and fuzzy at some points mainly because the screen is smaller than it should be. And to be clear the screen shrunk from the sides of the screen, and not from the tops.

If it is an lcd monitor make sure the refresh rate is set to 60hz and the resolution is at least 1024X768 then try to push auto adjust again. To get to the refresh click on the advanced button when the display properties is open.
