    I even phoned emachines and they told me that there is no included software for this LCD, that my graphics card should have it or I need to google to find it - pretty crappy customer service at emachines! I did download a free scan that showed the driver in results prior to purchase screen, so I just googled it and downloaded it, works even though I still have taller than screen display that can roll up or down about an inch. But I have proper dimentions of items displayed now. Thank you, anyway.

The monitor should have came with an installation or drivers cd. Use this disc to install the monitor specific drivers for your operating system. If you do not have the cd then you should be able to download them from the support section of your monitor manufacturers website. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

3. In the Screen Resolution section you can adjust the resolution to what your video card and monitor can support.

Note with wide screen monitors you will be able to select non wide screen resolutions so you may need to adjust the settings to get the best resolution for your monitor. Also it is recommended that you install any drivers for your monitor so that the video card can communicate to the monitor properly for the best display settings.

Right click on the desktop in a clear area and scroll down to either resolution or properties. From this you can experiment with resolution settings to see which setting best fits your display. After each setting change the computer will ask you if you want to accept the changes, it will give you 15 seconds for each change.

Screen ajustment


Hi stefan,

You can adjust manually using the OSD (on-screen display) menu of you monitor by pressing menu button. Other monitor OSDs cannot be accessed on single button but some combination of buttons but considering it can be accessed, please look for it. Try also changing the properties at Operating System GUID (graphics user interface display) Control Panel Display or your monitors display monitor application software. Try changing the frequencies and other special features like single screen or wide screen, etc..

Best regards,
Rosener

Start from lower frequency and notice the each changes. When perfectly proportionate select Apply settings.

Problem in monitor the screen doesnot get full wide of it by control panel


Assuming your running Windows as the operating system on your computer, go into Display Properties and set the refresh rate to something other than 60 hz or default. On my XP computer this can be done by right clicking on the desktop, clicking Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor. Anything in the 70, 72, or 75 hz range should work fine. If this does not fix the problem and the monitor is out of warranty trash it and get another one.
