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.

1. Right click on your desktop and select Properties
2. Click on the Settings tab
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.
change the resolution in one that fits better ..To change it try to right click on desktop choose properties..and in the window that opens choose setings ..you will have a slide button for resolution ..change them into one with equilibration between the width and length ..for example if it is a 1280 /768 ...set one to 1.24 on 768 ..will be almost 3/4 ..
Most of the drivers/software I get are from a web site driverguide.com you need
to fill out a free registration then search for the driver you need
download it in a format you can use install it and then most times
reboot the computer
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..
Hope this instruction well do solve like I met some problem like this. Try to reset the monitors setting manually in OSD (on screen display) mode. Look for frequency settings start at lower and have test it all. Respectively try to configure the video card frequency settings at Operating System GUID (Graphics user interface display) video card setting properties. Start from lower frequency and notice the each changes. When perfectly proportionate select Apply settings.
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.
