    I'm using Windows XP Professional. My computer

    Quick fix: Do a system restore to yesterday or whenever they last good restore date is.
    We could mess around with the settings for quite a while, but I'm not really sure what has happened. Unless you clicked in the lower right hand corner of your web browser (which I assume to be Internet Explorer) and reduced the size to something waaaaay less than 100%.

    My main screen is off center for game playing so I cannot get to all my buttons for choices--they are off the edge of the screen.

    The screen could not have shifted only for one game or prog. It may be larger on all side and you notice it during the game when you want to access the buttons. So, press the settings button and reduce the screen size to occupy the whole physical screen (ie, max and no more). Now you will get the whole picture on the entire screen.

    Screen bleeding blue-green along entire length (heighth)left side

    This may be some bad capacitors on the video output board or in along the processing path of the video amp sections. It is also possible that the CRT is causing this.

    The set should be properly checked to determine the fault.
