Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.

A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

Here's a screetshot of what the Box with the slider bar looks like: http://technophobik.co.uk/vxp_control_panel/f007_settings.asp

If you have Windows Vista, (it is similiar to XP):

Click the Start Button and click Control Panel in the Start Menu
Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom
A new box will pop up with the grey button on a slider bar near the bottom left under "Resolution" Slide the button to the right to the next line one spot over on the slider bar and then click the Apply button. The screen may flicker and change the size of your desktop. Click OK if the screen looks correct or click No if it doesn't look correct and try sliding the button over one more line.

My hp w2007 turned blue after I moved it how do I access screen display from the monitor menu


Some monitors change colour if there is damage, internally, within the signal cable. Try another cable if you have one.
Alternatively, it might be that the monitor is near an extremely strong magnetic source, such as big loudspeakers?

My monitor, hp w2007, shows for about 20 seconds when turned on then goes blurry then black how do i fix???


The most common problem that causes the screen to go to a black screen is due to bad capacitors in the screen's power supply board. The bad caps are the cylindrical and will appear to have bulging tops. 66c561df-0d01-416a-ae23-71f3b3965c88.jpg

My hp w2007 moniter keeps going black after about 10 mins. of idle .turned off screensaver because i want moniter to stay on but it doesnt.


Where you go to select "no" screen saver, there should be a "Power Settings" button. Press this and in there you can set the power save feature to "never" switch off monitor. Hope this helps. Ian.

This is an internal problem with the LCD monitor. It is defective and should be returned to the store your purchased it from for a new one. That is the only thing I can really think of if it is not reading properly with a seperate graphics card. It is an internal issue and needs to be repaired.

BRAND NEW MONITOR OUT OF THE BOX? DRIVER WILL NOT LOAD. DRIVER WONT LOAD FOR HP W2007 WIDE LCD MONITOR (32 BIT) HAVE DISK. (STILL WILL NOT LOAD)


This monitor doesn't need a driver installed. If you can see an image on it, you don't need the driver for it. Windows will install the default monitor driver, and that works for 99.99% of monitors on the market. You need to go into the Display control panel and change your resolution. If the monitor's native resolution isn't available as an option in the control panel, it's because your video card can't display it, not the monitor's fault.

I just purchased an HP w2007 hp monitor. After going through all the suggested start up routines, images are stretched horizontally. I'm using XP home edition with sp 3. My resolution doesn't seem to go...


if it's a wide screen monitor then the monitor is likely doing the stretching and you have to adjust using the monitor controls (either buttons on the monitor itself or it may have come with software as well if you loaded a CD when you first installed).
